Ann Swidler


 Ann Swidler (Ph.D. UC Berkeley; B.A. Harvard) studies the interplay of culture and institutions. She asks how culture works–both how people use it and how it shapes social life. She is best known for her books Talk of Love: How Culture Matters, and the co-authored works Habits of the Heart, The Good Society, and Inequality by Design, as well as her classic article, “Culture in Action: Symbols and Strategies” (American Sociological Review, 1986).
