Cass Sever

  • Visiting Instructor in Sociology

Cass Sever explores the lived consequences of deviant interactions, and the subsequent marginalizations that occur within relationships, everyday life and organizational contexts. As an ethnographer, she specializes in in-depth interviews, observation and creative descriptive methods. Her previous projects have investigated sex work and sexual offenses in environments of poverty. Her current work focuses on psychic harm — the invisible, emotional and psychological damage—- that occurs in organizational spaces.
