Ronald Breiger works in the areas of social networks, stratification, math models, theory, and measurement issues in cultural and institutional analysis. He is fascinated by the prospects for encouraging closer intellectual relations between the sociology of culture, cultural studies, social network analysis, and formal models of classification and social meaning.
