Jane Collins appointed to WARF professorship

Jane Collins, Frances Perkins Professor of Community and Environmental Sociology, is one of 10 UW-Madison faculty appointed to Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) named professorships in 2017.

The awards are intended to honor faculty who have made major contributions to the advancement of knowledge, primarily through their research endeavors, but also as a result of their teaching and service activities.

Collins has made significant contributions in the sociology of labor, where her research focuses on how globalization is changing work relationships; and the economic sociology of value determination, where she studies how society draws boundaries between market and non-market transactions.
