Ashlee Bledsoe completed her PhD in Sociology during the summer of 2017. Her dissertation -- and much of her research -- deals with the intersection of race and gender as it pertains to media production. In particular, her dissertation focused on how race and gender impinge upon the likelihood that musicians are inducted into a hall of fame and upon the speed with which eventual inductees enter those halls of fame, using the Rock and Roll and Country Music Halls of Fame as the empirical foci. Her research interests translate into her teaching interests. A winner for the prestigious Mellon Fellowship for Graduate Teaching, she continues as a visiting assistant professor at Emory Sociology by teaching such courses as Intro to Sociology, Individual and Society, and Gender and Society.
