Introduction to Sociology
Fae Chubin's areas of expertise include race, class and gender, social movements, transnational activism, border security and immigration discourses.
She has taught a variety of courses across institutions including Gender and Society, Sociology of Families, Middle Eastern Societies, Sociology of Globalization, Social Problems, Gender and Social Movements, and Introduction to Sociology.
Chubin's research and teaching broach comparative and intersectional examinations of gender, race and class, identity politics and the resistance of subaltern women. Her upcoming book "Becoming Proper: Feminism and the Politics of Respectability in Iran" examines the class and ethnic discourses of respectability entangled with Iran’s middle-class feminism to demonstrate how attempts for women’s liberation can facilitate class and ethnic hierarchies. Her book also examines the translation and adaptation processes involved in the implementation of social programs in marginalized cultural contexts and the importance of cultural competency for transnational activists.
Chubin’s research has been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Sexualities, the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography, Women’s Studies International Forum, International Journal of Politics, Culture, and Society, and Sociological Inquiry. She has a book chapter in "The New Global Politics: Global Social Movement in the 21st Century" and is a co-editor of an edited volume "Consuming Bodies: Body Commodification and Embodiment in Late Capitalist Societies," to which she is contributing a chapter on feminist and NGO interventions around genital surgeries.
