D Nicole English, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Sociology

D. Nicole English is an assistant professor of sociology and currently teaches Introduction to Sociology, Diversity in the US, and LatinX Studies courses.  Her degrees are from the University of Missouri-Kansas City (Ph.D., 2014; M.A. 2006; B.A. 1998).  Her areas of specialization are sociology of dance, arts and community, LatinX studies, and technology.  Her research interests include the social impact of the arts, (esp. dance), culture, and community, and their relationship to health and well-being across the life span.  Her thesis was published in 2008 by VDM Verlag Publishers, titled Psychological Testing Using the Web vs. Paper-And-Pencil, and compares online tesing versus traditional testing.  Her dissertation examined how dance groups create community, both within the group and outside of the group, and how dance movement translates into social interactions as a process to create solidarity.  Born in Texas, raised bilingual in two cultures, Nicole is a second generation academic and folkloric dancer.
