Kim Weeden
Associate Professor, Cornell University

Kim Weeden is Associate Professor in the Sociology Department at Cornell University. She studies inequality in advanced industrial societies, how it is organized, and how it is changing. Current projects examine the sources of rising income inequality (with David Grusky); occupational "closure" practices (e.g., licensing, educational credentialing, certification, unionization) and their impact on income inequality in the US and, in a new collaborative project led by Thijs Bol, the UK and Germany; the relationship between class membership and life chances, political views, social attitudes and cultural practices; and the form of the multidimensional inequality space.
