Landon Schnabel's primary research and teaching area is gender, though his interests and projects broadly encompass gender, religion/nonreligion, public opinion, and inequality from a critical perspective. He is particularly interested in how gender and sexuality relate to religion, public opinion, and inequality.
Landon's current research projects explore, among other topics, gender and sexuality attitudes across religious groups, gender differences in religiosity by income level and religious affiliation, the gender wage gap, and attitude change toward the legalization of marijuana and same-sex marriage.
Landon believes that Sociology's aim should be improving society and championing the cause of the oppressed rather than being just an intellectual exercise. However, he also thinks that rigorous scholarship is important for understanding how to best promote the public good and benefit society.
