Patrick Inglis

Assistant Professor

I was born in Ottawa and grew up in Vancouver. I taught high school English for five years before moving to New York to begin my graduate studies in the Sociology Program at the City University of New York. My  dissertation, It Will Become: Modern India and the Labor of Aspiration, which I am now developing into a book manuscript, was defended in June of 2013.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Grinnell College, in Iowa, where I teach core subjects in the major, including Introduction to Sociology and Methods, in addition to "The Asian Megacity," which reflects one of my main areas of research. I also organize the International and Comparative Studies Working Group at the College; meeting once a month, the group offers faculty in the social sciences and humanities opportunities to present drafts of early research in progress.
