Anne Warfield Rawls is Professor of Sociology, Bentley University, Professor of Socio-Informatics, Siegen University and Director of the Garfinkel Archive. Teaching social and interactional theory for over forty years Professor Rawls has also written extensively on Durkheim and Garfinkel, explaining their argument that equality is needed to ground practices in democratic publics, and showing how inequality interferes with the cooperation necessary to successfully engage in complex practices. She has documented the latter point through research on interaction between race/cultural groups. Publications include “Discovering Culture in Interaction: Solving Problems in Cultural Sociology by Recovering the Interactional Side of Parsons’ Conception of Culture”, American Journal of Cultural Sociology (2019); “Introduction to Garfinkel’s ‘Notes on Language Games’: Language events as Cultural Events in ‘Systems of Interaction’”, European Journal of Social Theory (2019); “The Wartime Narrative in US Sociology 1940-1947: Stigmatizing Qualitative Sociology in the Name of “Science” (2018), European Journal of Social Theory; “An Essay on the Intrinsic Relationship between Social Facts and Moral Questions”. Canadian Journal of Sociology, (2017); Durkheim’s Epistemology (Cambridge, 2008); and, La Division du Travail Revisited: Vers une Théorie Sociologique de la Justice (2019, Bord de l’eau, an English version of which is under contract with Routledge).
Professor Rawls has also edited many volumes of Garfinkel’s work including Parsons Primer (2019), for which she edited and co-authored the introduction with Jason Turowetz, The History of Gulfport Field 1942, Part II: The Aircraft Mechanics School, Section II Part II” (University of Siegen 2019), for which she co-authored an introduction with Mike Lynch (“Harold Garfinkel's History of Gulfport Field 1942, Part II, The Aircraft Mechanics School: Mocking-up and Making-do in the Midst of Wartime Urgency”), and Toward a Sociological Theory of Information (2008).
Her publications on Race which report original research demonstrating the overall argument include Tacit Racism co-authored with Waverly Duck (University of Chicago, forthcoming), “Race as an Interaction Order Phenomena: W.E.B. Du Bois’ ‘Double Consciousness’ Thesis Revisited” (2000), “’Fractured Reflections’ of High Status Black Male Presentations of Self” (Sociological Focus first author with Waverly Duck, 2017), "Playing the Interrogation Game: Rapport, Coercion, and Confessions in Police Interrogations", Symbolic Interaction (2017, second author with Gary David and James Treinum), “Problems Establishing Identity/Residency in a City Neighborhood during a Black/White Police/Citizen Encounter: Revisiting Du Bois’ Conception of ‘The Submissive Man’”. City and Community (first author with Waverly Duck and Jason Turowetz, 2018).
