Alison Gerber's research focuses on artists as workers and on value in working life. She investigates the ways that artists, broadly defined, account for the value of their own practice and uses patterned accounts to develop a theory of disagreement and revaluation in working life. She is generally interested in work, culture, and public life. She is a junior fellow of the Center for Comparative Research and the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale. Alison holds a BA and BFA from the University of Minnesota, attended Critical Studies at Malmö Art Academy / Lund University, and holds an MA and MPhil from Yale University, where she is currently a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology. Alison lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
