Dr. Danielle Docka-Filipek holds a doctorate in sociology and a graduate certificate in Advanced Feminist Studies from the University of Minnesota. She was born in the Chicago metro and spent her childhood in a small rust-belt town on the shore of Lake Michigan in southeastern Wisconsin. Her studies would later take her to central Illinois, the Twin Cities area of Minnesota, Los Angeles, and Columbus, Ohio. Her current research projects include examining the connections between normative family ideals and gendered organizational regimes in government-religious social service partnerships (“faith-based initiatives”); vulnerability and disclosure as a pedagogical tactic; gender and family stratification in the American ‘marriage movement;’ racial discourses and attitudes towards ‘diversity’ among American college students; and moral boundaries, race, and class in U.S. neighborhood organizations.
