Heather Johnson

Status: Phd researcher

Heather Johnson obtained her Masters of the Arts in Sociology from North Carolina State University in the spring of 2019, where she was also a teaching assistant. Her thesis was a qualitative study which focused on the ways in which North Carolina women chefs/restaurant owners navigated a historically hypermasculine profession and whether their workplaces adhered to patriarchal norms, challenged them, or did both simultaneously.

In the fall of 2019, she became an exchange student at Ghent University. Under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bart Van de Putte, her current preliminary dissertation research focuses on the nexus of immigration and food.
