Predoctoral Trainee in Sociology
Song is broadly interested in family and inequality. A central question motivating his research is: how does family as an institution reproduce socioeconomic and health inequalities across intersecting lines of gender, sexuality, race, and social class? He answers this question by examining the institutions of union formation and dissolution, assortative mating, division of labor, and childbearing and parenting in the global context (U.S. and East Asia).
His dissertation focuses on the intimate relationships of sexual minorities (lesbians, gays, and bisexuals (LGB)). More details on his projects can be found here.
