Dr. Rider's Curriculum Vitae

Erin

A product of Seattle, WA, Dr. Rider teaches in a somewhat Socratic style - she throws out ideas, students respond, and then an interesting dialogue begins. Throughout the process everyone learns.


Classes Taught:  SY 221 Introduction to Sociology, SY 223 Social Problems, SY 315 Deviant Behavior, SY 350 Sociology of Disasters, SY 360 Ethnic and Minority Group Relations, SY 362 Global Immigration, Patterns and Trends, and SY 499 Senior Sociological Seminar

Dr. Rider's research focuses on asylum seekers, sexual violence in war contexts, and disasters.  Her theoretical frame for these research areas is the action process of marginalized individuals.
