Chris Knoester


(MENAFN - The Conversation) Associate Professor of Sociology,

Family sociologist; sport sociologist

As a sociology professor, I teach sociology classes and conduct quantitative social science research. Traditionally, my research has focused on the effects of children on parents'' lives and on the patterns and implications of fathering, specifically. Recently, I have been comprehensively analyzing the patterns and implications of paternity leaves. I created a new National Sports and Society Survey (https://nsass.org), a landmark project that focuses on patterns of sports involvement and their links to well-being, and have been transitioning into actively researching sports and society issues-- after having restricted my interests in this area to only teaching the sociology of sport, and informally analyzing it, over the past 20+ years.
