Dr. Kris Marsh
Associate Professor of Sociology, University of Maryland
CPC Training Program Postdoctoral Scholar Alumna
Professor Kris Marsh’s general areas of expertise are the black middle class, demography, racial residential segregation, and education. She has combined these interests to develop a research agenda divided into three broad areas: the black middle class, the intersection of educational attainment and racial identification, and intra-racial health disparities. The common theme in her work is decomposing what it means to be black in America by focusing on intra-group variability in regards to class, space, identity, educational achievement, and mental health. Professor Marsh teaches undergraduate courses in Research Methods and Race Relations. In addition, she is interested in constructing specialized graduate and undergraduate seminars on Racial Residential Segregation, Black Middle Class, and Sociology of Education.
