Graduate Student

Chris Rogers

I am a Doctoral Student in Sociology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I received his B.A. in Sociology with a double minor in Comparative Literature & Linguistic Anthropology from Hamilton College in 2015. In 2018, I earned his Master's Degree in Sociology at Northeastern University. My research interests explore the complexity of Black people's lives within different spaces and how structural forces impact their ability to conceptualize their existence within the social world.  Specifically, my research aims to answer the following social phenomenon/question "What does it mean to be part of the  Black race in society, and how does such an understanding of Blackness is developed in the first place."

  • I am currently teaching sociology 110.
