Alumni Association Distinguished Teaching Award
Stephen J. Scanlan

Dr. Scanlan joined the University of Memphis in 2001 with a Ph.D. from the Ohio State University. Since then, Dr. Scanlan has taught at both the graduate and undergraduate level. His courses mirror his research interests in comparative social change, political sociology and social movements, and social stratification and inequality. He is co-author of a forthcoming book—Global Inequalities—and has published research articles on hunger, militarization, and women in development in several journals, including American Sociological Review.

Dr. Larry Peterson, Interim Chair of the Department of Sociology, describes Dr. Scanlan as 'a truly outstanding, dedicated teacher' who 'uses a variety of teaching techniques that actively involve students in their own learning.' No matter what technique he uses, Dr. Scanlan is highly enthusiastic about course material and he communicates this enthusiasm to students.
