Dr. Sherri Lawson Clark (Ph.D., American University), an applied cultural anthropologist, researches social problems associated with poverty in both urban and rural settings. She is particularly interested in the intersections of housing instability with individual and family experiences, social interactions, community organization, mental and physical health disparities, and other public policies enacted to aid the poor. Currently, she is the faculty director of a community-based participatory research program to connect faculty with community members in engaged research. She teaches courses in cultural anthropology and social stratification in America surrounding her research foci. Her courses are cross-listed with the Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies and the American Ethnic Studies programs. Dr. Lawson Clark’s ultimate goal is to continue her teaching and scholarship in order to equip students with the necessary knowledge, training, and cultural sensitivities to aid them as future problem-solvers and leaders in our global world.
