Annette Nierobisz, Professor of Sociology and Director, Summer Quantitative Reasoning Program.

Professor Nierobisz has taught at Carleton College since 2000. Her expertise is in the fields of Work and Occupations, Aging and the Life Course, Methods of Social Research, and Criminology. Professor Nierobisz's research has examined a broad range of topics, from fear of crime among women who encounter sexual harassment in public spaces to a current project examining the experiences of older workers who lost their jobs as a result of the 2008 Great Recession. Professor Nierobisz’s longstanding interest in Law, Crime, and Deviance began when she declared a double major in Sociology and Justice and Law Enforcement as a college student at the University of Winnipeg. Since joining Carleton, she has offered a wide range of criminology courses including The Myths of Crime; Girls Gone Bad: Women, Crime, and Criminal Justice; Contemporary Issues in Critical Criminology; and X=Crime.

In 2006 Annette was invited to be the Senior Researcher at the Canadian Human Rights Commission. In this two year appointment she completed projects that examined a broad range of human rights issues including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, discrimination on the basis of disability, and the discriminatory impact of national security policies.
