Dr. Anjel Stough-Hunter earned a master’s degree in Medical Anthropology from University
College London in England, and graduated from Ohio State University where she earned
her doctoral degree in Rural Sociology.
Her research focuses on gender, health and the management of natural resources within
the context of the local community. She is interested in the notion that perceptions
of risk and decisions about both health and the natural environment are made within
the socially constructed context of locally based daily life.
Her dissertation, titled “Examining the Role of Community and Gender on Perceptions
of Impaired Water Quality: A Comparative Case Study,” combined quantitative and qualitative
methods to examine how gender and place influence perceptions of impaired water quality.
She plans to teach Introduction to Sociology, Deviance and Institutional Problems,
Research Methods and Sociological Theory.
