Naomi Gerstel

Naomi Gerstel is Distinguished University Professor and professor of sociology at the University of Massachusetts.   In recent years, funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation and the Spencer Foundation, her research and teaching have focused on inequalities -- whether in families, work hours and schedules, or schools. Much of her research dovetails nicely with the agenda of Northampton Neighbors as it addresses the caregiving that family members do (and don’t do) for one another.
