Formal First Name

Sarah Quinn uses historical research and case studies to investigate the intersection of political institutions, market practices, and systems of moralization. An Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Washington, an affiliate faculty at Urban@UW, and a current member of the Institute for Advanced Study, she also studies processes of moralization and classification which are united by her abiding interest in how social categories interact with systems of power. Quinn's ongoing research investigates the development of federal credit programs, the complex style of American political institutions, and the moralized systems of social classification.
