Bio:

Dr. Knudson’s teaching and research interests focus on urban and metropolitan affairs, education, political economy, and class/inequality. His current research project examines school choice, particularly middle class families who decide to remain in central cities and enroll their children in central-city public schools. Papers based on this research have been presented at meetings of the American Sociological Association, the Eastern Sociological Society, and the Association for Humanist Sociology. At Methodist, he plans to continue this research and also begin a pilot study on economic concerns/problems facing military families. In his free time, he enjoys novels, Netflix, mountain hiking, various lake activities, and the beach.
