Bio

Mary Nell Trautner, PhD, is an associate professor in the UB Department of Sociology. Her research focuses on intersections of social inequality and social justice, asking how law, culture and organizational practices shape the ways in which inequality is created, perpetuated and/or experienced.

Prof. Trautner's current research spans a range of topics, including analyses of young people’s ideologies of gender; prosecutors as cause lawyers; living wage campaigns; young people's experiences with crime; and sexual aggression in bars. She is also working on an NSF-funded project about how families cope with and make decisions about their child’s birth injuries.
