Jorie Hofstra is a sociologist who studies emotion, intersubjectivity, and selfhood, with a focus on marginalized bodies and minds. Part of her book project—a study of how people engage with neurocultural discourses in managing their own brain injuries—has been published. Other works in progress include constructing a new concept for the study of empathy as a truly intersubjective phenomenon, identifying opportunities for access and inclusion in sociological research practices, and collaborating on a study of votive offerings excavated in ancient Greek healing sanctuaries.
