Evelyn Perry is a proud Milwaukee native and Associate Professor of
Sociology at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She earned a
Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at Colorado College and holds a Ph.D.
in Sociology from Indiana University. Cities are of great interest to
her because they provide myriad opportunities to investigate how
inequities are produced, perpetuated and challenged. Her research
program examines these processes in the context of neighborhood life—
drawing together the areas of community and urban sociology, culture,
and inequality to address core social science and policy concerns.
