Dwight grew up in Arlington, Virginia and received his Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California at Santa Barbara. His scholarly interests include social psychology, identities and inequalities, the sociology of gender, and qualitative research methods. After teaching sociology at Vassar and Middlebury College, Dwight joined the Harvard College Writing Program in 2012 and since then has enjoyed teaching and working with colleagues on curricular and pedagogical innovations within the Writing Program. He is also a faculty affiliate in Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality. Dwight’s Expos 20 course, “Social Worlds of Friendship at Harvard,” addresses issues of friendship, community-building, and social networks on the undergraduate campus. In collaboration with the Bok Center for Teaching and Learning, the course has created an ongoing student-focused video and oral history project, The Friendship Project, aimed at expanding the dialogue about friendship, difference, and inclusion at Harvard. Very happy at home in Medford with his spouse Maritza and their two cats, Zora and Bruno, Dwight also spends a lot of time thinking about his next trip to Puerto Rico.
