Professor, Chair of Sociology, and IMSRL Director
Arthur Scarritt earned his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his BA from the Evergreen State College. His research explores the intersections of racism, indigenous populations in Latin America, and globalization. He is particularly interested in how the organization of society perpetuates racial inequalities, and strategies for overcoming these unequal relations. Happy to make Boise his new home, Dr. Scarritt hopes to direct his inquiries to the social relations surrounding Idaho’s Latino populations, and to work collaboratively to make broad geographical comparisons. Teaching a variety of introductory and advanced courses, Dr. Scarritt enjoys guiding students to the amazing vistas provided by the sociological imagination. Scarritt also hopes to be found hiking, skiing, canoeing, rock climbing, and mountain biking.
