About Spencer

Spencer is a fourth-year doctoral student in Sociology at the University of Michigan — Ann Arbor.  He received dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in Sociology and English from the University of Washington — Seattle in 2010.

Spencer is a Rackham Merit Fellow, a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, and an affiliate of the University’s Graduate Certificate Program in LGBTQ Studies.

Broadly, my research assesses how social network transformations — changes in the number, type, function, intensity, or organization of our ties to others — inform and give shape to various social-psychological projects (including identity formation, narrative development, and situated sense-making).

Other research interests include gender, sexuality, embodiment, digital environments, narrative and memory, and qualitative and ethnographic methods.
