|Pfeffer, Carla, PhD|
Carla A. Pfeffer received her Ph.D. in Sociology (and Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies) from the University of Michigan. Dr. Pfeffer's award-winning research focuses on intersections of sex, gender, sexuality, bodies, and family in the lives of women partners of transgender and transsexual men in the United States and Canada. Dr. Pfeffer has also been involved with collaborative research examining Americans' beliefs about the potential genetic etiology of perceived gender, race, class, and sexual orientation differences, as well as their associations with prejudice against women, people of color, poor people, gay men, and lesbians. One of the goals of Dr. Pfeffer's research is to shift critical studies of sex, gender, sexuality, the body, and LGBTQ topics, individuals, and communities from the margins to the center of social inquiry and analysis.
