Women's and Gender Studies Terrell Hayes
Associate Profess of Sociology
Dr. Terrell A. Hayes, Associate Professor of Sociology, received his Ph.D. in Sociology from Vanderbilt University. He has been a member of the HPU faculty since 2001. His primary research interest is in the sociology of consumption and consumer culture: its causes and consequences.
Dr. Hayes teaches a number of courses in the Sociology Department, including SOC/WGS 4015: Sociology of Work and Family. “As a sociologist I am particularly excited to be affiliated with WGS. The study of gender has emerged as one of the most important subfields in sociology. Sociological research on gender shows that all social interactions, and the institutions in which the interactions occur, are gendered in some manner. Thus, gender is a key component to understanding the ordering and shaping of society at both the micro and macro level.”
