in the journals Gender & Society, Ethnic and Racial Studies, Sociological Forum, Social Psychology Quarterly, Social Science &
Medicine, and other scholarly outlets. Dr. Harnois’ work on the importance of intersectionality for measuring and modeling
racial-ethnic discrimination received the 2012 Outstanding Contribution to Scholarship Article Award from the American
Sociological Association section on Race, Gender, and Class. Her book, Feminist Measures in Survey Research (Sage Publications, 2013)
draws from feminist philosophies of science, standpoint theory, and multiracial feminist theory to consider what it means to bring an
intersectional approach to social science survey research.
