Anne Lincoln

Associate Professor of Sociology
Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences

Sociologist Anne Lincoln, Ph.D., specializes in examining the disparity between women and men in areas of education, the labor market and the culture industry. She also examines women’s attraction and retention in science careers.

Her research on the feminization of veterinary medical education challenged commonly held beliefs that women choice of veterinary medicine allows them to express a caring nature or that they are less concerned with salaries than men. Instead, she found that men and women are equally motivated by earnings and that the profession's feminization is driven by men's avoidance of the feminizing classes, resulting from men's lower college graduation since the early 1980s.

Her research interests include work and organizations, labor markets, gender, culture and culture industries.

Lincoln gave the keynote address at the Second International Symposium of the Female Scientists Support Unit at Nihon University in Tokyo, and has been an invited speaker at the National Science Foundation, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Association for Women in Science, the Dallas County Community College District STEM Summit, the Women's Transportation Seminar, and numerous other meetings of scholars and professionals.
