Michael Ramirez is Associate Professor of Sociology and Coordinator of the Women and Gender Studies Program at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi. He teaches courses on gender, work, aging and the life course, film, as well as courses in Women and Gender Studies.

His research interests include gender, the life course, and identity. He has previously studied the ways in which gender influences people's relationships with their pets.  He has also completed a life course study of women and men pursuing informal musical careers in early adulthood, a project he is currently developing into a book. Two other projects are in process.  The first is an ethnographic study of a regional religious men's movement.  The second is a qualitative content analysis of the gendered narratives in beer and alcohol advertisements.
