Georgia State Ph.D. Student Helps Write Online Textbook

Georgia State University graduate student George Greenidge Jr. recently co-authored the sociology textbook Alternative Urbanisms & Social Deviance.

Greenidge is a Ph.D. candidate in the Sociology Department in the College of Arts & Sciences at Georgia State.

The textbook, a collaboration between former and current M.A. and Ph.D. students from the Sociology Department, serves as a framework to view more clearly the fluidity and intersectionality of socially deviant labels and their consequences.

Sociology professor Deirdre A. Oakley is using the textbook in her upper-level course, Deviant Behavior.

Greenidge's research focuses on the economic development of cities and the impact of displacement and gentrification on residents.

The College of Arts & Sciences provides a skills-based liberal arts and sciences education for Atlanta's diverse, next-generation workforce.
