professional biography

Casey Stockstill is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at the University of Denver. Her research investigates race, class, and gender inequalities in various contexts. Dr. Stockstill conducted a two-year ethnography in segregated Wisconsin preschools. This work details daily inequalities in how children experience space, time, and peer and teacher relationships. In a second line of work, Dr. Stockstill conducts experiments to investigate how different racial signals—like skin tone, asserted racial identity, and racialized names—produce micro-level prejudice. Finally, Dr. Stockstill is beginning a second major project that uses historical archives to trace people’s perceptions of Black and Mexican children’s social value between 1880-1930.
