Research Interests: Celene Reynolds is a first-year graduate student in the Yale Department of Sociology. Celene’s research interests include social movements/social change, historical comparative methods, and gender/sexuality. She is particularly interested in the end of change and how innovative forms become de-revolutionized through the process of institutionalization. In her current work, she examines how American colleges and universities translate and reflect broader value shifts in the culture at-large and relatedly, how these wide-ranging cultural changes impact localized institutional policies.
Education: B.A. Sociology, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with Honors in Sociology (Wellesley College, 2009); M.A. Social Sciences (University of Chicago, 2011)
