Anthony Johnson CV [PDF]

My research focuses broadly on the cultural mechanisms of inequality reproduction in education. My work explores new forms of inequality among peer groups in the wake of the widespread adoption of collaborative learning approaches in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs. My current book project, Engineering Advantage: How Inequality in Collaboration Persists in Elite STEM Programs, examines the disparate collaborative experiences of college students in elite STEM programs and the role of the culture and structure of these programs in reproducing these disparities. My research has appeared in journals including American Sociological Review and Sociology of Education and has been supported by the National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation Postdoctoral and Dissertation Fellowship Programs, the Student Experience Research Network (formerly the Mindset Scholars Network), and the National Science Foundation.
