Abstract
Judith Treas joined the UCI Sociology Department in 1989 as its founding chair, having previously taught at the University of Southern California. In 1998, she led the founding of the UCI Graduate Program in Demographic and Social Analysis (DASA) and later the campus research Center on Demographic and Social Analysis (C-DASA), which she now directs.
Engaging issues of inequality, gender, family, and aging and the life course, often from a cross-national perspective, her research and teaching has led to over 100 published articles, chapters, and books. Her cross-national research on how partners manage their relationships and households has been supported by NSF, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and the European Science Foundation. With her students, now working on four continents, she pioneered research relating gender inequality in household labor to country characteristics. Her other line of research considers older adults in America’s immigrant families. Her research contributions have been recognized by sections of the American Sociological Association, the Gerontological Society of America, the National Council on Family Relations, the Population Association of America, and Oregon State University.

Dr. Treas is Chair-Elect of the Section on the Sociology of Population of the American Sociological Association and has served as the Chair of the ASA Section on Aging and the Life Course. She was facilitator of the U.S. Census Advisory Committee (Population Association of America Subcommittee), which provides technical consultation to the Census Bureau on its projects and products. She has also served on the Board of Directors of the Population Association of America and on the Board of Overseers of the General Social Survey.
