Adam Goldstein is Assistant Professor jointly appointed in the Department of Sociology and the Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs. He earned his PhD in Sociology from the University of California at Berkeley and was a Robert Wood Johnson Post-Doctoral Scholar at Harvard. His areas of interest include economic sociology, organizations, and social stratification. His current research examines the social consequences of financial capitalism in the contemporary United States. He is interested in how institutional changes associated with ‘financialization’ have reshaped various socio-economic domains, and how organizations, communities and households respond to these changes in patterned (and often surprising) ways. His research has been published in journals including the American Sociological Review and Socio-Economic Review.
