Celine-Marie Pascale

As a sociologist, Pascale has won national and international awards for her scholarship regarding the ways that inequalities are normalized through the language we use to describe them. Her most recent book, Living on the Edge: When Hard Times Become A Way of Life looks at the lives of people who struggle to make ends meet, a system that profits from their struggles, and a vision for change from working people who know too well that economy we have is unsustainable for most of the US population. Her previous books include: Social Inequalities & The Politics of Representation: A Global Landscape. Thousand Oaks: Sage Publications Cartographies of Knowledge: Exploring Qualitative Epistemologies. Thousand Oaks: Sage Publications. (Received the 2012 Distinguished Book Award from the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry.) Making Sense of Race, Class and Gender: Commonsense, Power and Privilege in the U.S. New York: Routledge. (Received the Distinguished Book Award from the American Sociological Association Section on Race, Class, and Gender.)
