issues throughout her career. She began teaching at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1973 and officially retired
in 2007. Stoller has since returned as an emeritus professor from 2007-2009 and 2011.
Nancy Elaine Stoller was born in 1942 in Newport News, Virginia. In 1960 she left Virginia to attend Wellesley College in
Wellesley, Massachusetts, where she earned an A.B. in Philosophy in 1963. She went on to earn her M.A. (1965) and Ph.D. (1972)
in Sociology from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. From 1978-1980 she was a Post-doctoral fellow at Yale University.
Stoller started her job at University of California (UC) Santa Cruz in 1973 and received tenure in 1987 after having filed
a gender discrimination suit against the University. Stoller worked and published under her married name, Nancy Shaw, for
many years before reclaiming Stoller in the 1990s. Stoller's research has focused on AIDS, women, prisoners, and health care.
