My name is Jennifer Dawn Carlson, and I am an American sociologist (PhD, UC Berkeley) who works at the University of Toronto, splitting my time between Detroit and Toronto.

I am the author of Citizen-Protectors: The Everyday Politics of Guns in an Age ofDecline, forthcoming in 2015 with Oxford University Press.  

My interests include gender, criminology, socio-legal studies, political sociology and social theory, and my research focuses on guns, gun politics and gun crime. To learn more about my Research, including my Current Projects and my Publications, please click here.
