Assistant Professor ● Department of Sociology ● University of Maryland
Long Doan is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland. He is broadly interested in how various social psychological processes motivate behavior and explain patterns of inequality. In particular, Doan is interested in the intersections of sexuality, gender, and race. His work examines how seemingly subtle differences in evaluations of individuals based on their social characteristics lead to larger, more concrete implications, such as the acceptance or denial of legal rights or decisions related to hiring.
His current projects examine (1) the ways in which people’s gender and race jointly affect others’ interpretations of their emotion displays and, in turn, subsequent evaluations of them; (2) Americans' attitudes toward the gender and sexuality; (3) the role of status, power, and emotions in escalating or reducing intergroup conflict; and (4) predictors of sexual identity disclosure and the health consequences of sexual identity discrepancy. He is also involved in methodological work developing a general framework for comparing marginal effects across models. Doan's work primarily uses experimental and survey methods, and he is a member of the Group Processes Lab in the Department of Sociology. He teaches courses in the sociology of emotions, social psychology, and research methods.
