Professor Charlie Eaton Publishes in the American Sociological Review

October 13, 2021

Professor Charlie Eaton, along with co-author Adam Goldstein, recently added a published paper into the American Sociological Review. The published paper is titled “Asymmetry by Design? Identity, Obfuscation, Reputational Pressure, and Consumer Predation in the U.S For-Profit Higher Education". The publication adds onto the research that it aimed at analysis of higher education, organizational theory, and markets of sociology.

Eaton’s and Goldstein’s published paper highlights how U.S. for-profit postsecondary company brands hide that they provide substandard education when a brand undergoes a scandal. What this means is that profit-motivated brands have created an atmosphere of “malfeasance”, as quoted in the publication, because it has affected student outcomes, instruction, colleges who are associated with brand companies, and regulatory sanctions. This publication is great for those who would like to learn about and acknowledge how consumer predation in the United States can implicate the Sociology of Higher Education.
