Meet Professor Daniel Carlson, who joined the GSU Sociology Department faculty in 2012.

According to his department profile, one line of his research employs “identity discrepancy, normative life course, and social stress theory” to examine “how recent changes in family formation patterns, family structures, and family roles have affected the well-being of children and adults in families.” And his current research examines “the causes and consequences of the sexual division of labor in romantic unions and one’s gender ideology, exploring how discrepancies between ideology and paid and unpaid labor arrangements affect adults’ mental health.”  His teaching interests include “Introduction to Sociology, Sociological Theory, Research Methods, Statistics, Social Psychology, Sociology of Mental Health, Aging and the Life Course, Work and Family, and Family Demography.”
