This is my faculty web site. They call me Professor Cristina I have been teaching at CSULA since 1994, the majority of that time as a Full Professor; I now teach only in the Fall Semesters. However, I have also worked in a variety of discipline-related applied jobs. I was a Consultant to the Office of Civil Rights; a Program Evaluator for non-profit research firms such as Southwest Regional Lab; a Researcher in think tanks such as System Development Corporation (Rand affiliated); a Consultant for private sector organizations such as Exxon and Digital; and more. See my CV (Curriculum Vita). Although I have several special interests within the discipline, I am currently most active in digital sociology, the ropic of my most recent book (2019). This flows natuarally from my other main sociological interests: (1) sociology of media, popular culture, arts, and literature, and (2) social psychology.
It has been my challenge and reward to run the MA Program in Sociology for almost 2 decades, ending in Fall 2019. My recently published book: Interfacing Ourselves: Living in the Digital Age (2019) includes chapters authored (or co-authored) by my former graduate student mentees, based on work they completed here for their culminating projects.
