Dr. Jeffrey Hass
Associate Professor of Sociology
Profile

My interests ultimate relate to the human capacity for action, which means I study power, culture, and practice. Why do we do what we do, and do we act from compulsion or autonomous desire? How do social practices persist and change? This leads me to question just what "institutions" and "structures" are--social phenomena that too often are taken for granted.
