Julie E. Brines

Associate Professor of Sociology
University of Washington
Julie Brines is Associate Professor of Sociology. Her research examines the ways in which gender governs the division of labor and the production and distribution of key goods in families, often with a focus on the consequences of these arrangements for family stability, and on how these consequences, in turn, are shaped by the legal or economic environments confronting couples. She is also interested in what underlies social change in couples' work and earnings arrangements. Her research combines interests in gender and sexualities, family relations, stratification, the economics of households, and the social psychology of close relationships.
