Professor Renfrow is intrigued with the unexamined, taken-for-granted systems of meaning that influence our everyday lives. As a sociological social psychologist, his research and teaching explore the micro-foundations of societal inequalities based on sex, gender, and sexuality. His recent work centers the body within sociological analysis.
