Annette Nierobisz

Annette Nierobisz, Professor of Sociology, has received a Franklin Research Grant from the American Philosophical Society (APS) for work toward completing her co-authored book, American Idle: Late Career Job Loss in a Neoliberal Era. The oldest learned society in the U.S. (est. 1743), APS continues to pursue its original mission of “promoting useful knowledge” through grants, fellowships, and public outreach. Support from APS will allow Professor Nierobisz and her co-author, Professor Dana Sawchuk of Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada, to conduct and analyze data gathered in follow-up interviews, and to collaboratively work toward completing their manuscript.
