Sarah Hoiland

Assistant Professor of Sociology

My research is on the erasure of female motorcyclists in the U.S. 20th century and ethnographic inquiry into contemporary women's motorcycle clubs. I teach sociology, anthropology, and the liberal arts capstone "Bronx Beautiful" and integrate OERs, service learning and civic engagement, and QR/QL.
