Rosalind is a PhD candidate in Sociology with a specialization in Women’s and Gender Studies. Her research focuses on LGBTQ communities and identities. Her dissertation, “Old, Gray, and Gay: LGBTQ Aging and Identity,” uses life history interviews with LGBTQ elders to explore the meanings elders construct for their identities and how these meanings change with aging. Through recruitment of a diverse sample, her dissertation further explores how race, gender, and geography shape LGBTQ elders’ identities. While at UNL, she has enjoyed teaching courses for both Women’s and Gender Studies and for Sociology. Rosalind is also the chair of Unruly Sociologists, a graduate student-run organization dedicated to public sociology and scholar activism.
