Ann Mullen  

Sociology Professor at the University of Toronto; Social & Gender Inequality Researcher; Author of "Degrees of Inequality"

Professor Ann Mullen joined the sociology department at the University of Toronto in 2003, after holding a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship at the National Center for Education Statistics and then serving as a Senior Research Associate at the U.S. Department of Education. Her research interests include culture, social inequality, gender, and higher education. Her work has examined access to higher education, the role of elite institutions, the gendered segregation of fields of study, and competing cultural narratives about the purpose and value of higher education.

Her first book, "Degrees of Inequality: Culture, Class, and Gender in American Higher Education," was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2010. The book was awarded the Outstanding Publication in Postsecondary Education by the American Educational Research Association and the Educators Award by the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International. She is currently conducting two studies: an audit study to assess the relative value of bachelor's degrees from three Ontario universities in terms of labor market pay-offs and an ethnographic study of conceptual artists and art galleries in San Francisco.
