Generational Understanding

Dalton Conley, Ph.D., author, professor and dean for the social sciences at New York University, presented his lecture, “From the Protestant Ethic to Elsewhere Ethic: How Technology is Transforming Work, Home and Leisure,” at the Brooklyn Campus’ Tuohy Hall Auditorium on September 26.

Author of four books, Dr. Conley is perhaps best known for his contributions to understanding socioeconomic status and the way in which it is transmitted across generations. In 2005, Dr. Conley became the first sociologist to win the National Science Foundation’s Alan T. Waterman Award. He is also a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow.

In his latest work, Elsewhere, U.S.A., he discusses how economic, social and technological shifts over the past three decades have gradually altered the nature of work in America, and how these changes have impacted family life.
