Kathleen Gerson is Collegiate Professor of Sociology and a recognized authority on the intertwined revolutions in gender, work, and family life in the United States and globally. She is a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, among other awards, and the author of numerous books, including “The Unfinished Revolution,” an award-winning study of how new generations are reshaping family life after growing up in changing families, and most recently “The Science and Art of Interviewing” (with Sarah Damaske).
