Margaret Hagerman, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Mississippi State University

Margaret Hagerman received her B.A. and M.A. from Lehigh University and her Ph.D. in Sociology from Emory University in 2014. Broadly, her research focuses on how racial ideologies, or forms of racism, are socially reproduced, reworked, and resisted by young people. Her current book project explores how affluent, white children and youth come to understand race, racism, privilege, and inequality in the United States in the context of their families. Dr. Hagerman draws upon qualitative, youth-centered research methods, including ethnography, in-depth interviews, and focus groups. Her work can be found in academic journals including Journal of Marriage and FamilySociology of Race and EthnicityEthnic and Racial Studies, and Sociological Studies of Children and Youth. Dr. Hagerman teaches courses on race and ethnicity, sociology of education, sociology of children and youth, sociology of families, and qualitative methods.
