Christina Nadler is a social theorist and educator who holds a PhD from the Sociology Program at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Her work draws from cultural studies, environmental studies, animal studies, settler colonial studies, and critical race theory, but is grounded in a sociological perspective that is always engaged with inequality and social justice.  In her dissertation, “Denial: A Sociological Theory,” which she recently completed, she argues that denial is a structural condition of US society. She brings together different levels of sociological analysis to show the complex and layered ways society participates in and produces denial. Her future research will investigate the connections between industrial animal agriculture and climate change.
