Associate Professor, Sociology and Anthropology

(On Leave Fall 2021)

Jason Struna trained as a labor process sociologist and focused his dissertation on warehouses and distribution centers in Southern California, and the relationships among workers and firms in that industry. While a significant theme of that work emphasized the impacts of globalization on those relationships, it also considered the role of labor and community organizations in mitigating some of the social problems workers in the region experienced. Struna is the author or co-author of several articles and working papers on warehouse workers, labor, social class, student service learning, and globalization. He also wrote “Toward a Theory of Global Proletarian Fractions,” in Perspectives on Global Development and Technology (2009). The article also was included in the volume The Nation in the Global Era: Conflict and Transformation (Brill, 2009). Struna edited the book Global Capitalism and Transnational Class Formation (Routledge, 2013).
