She received her PhD from Harvard University in 2000 and is an alumni of the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. A comparative sociologist by training and taste, she has analyzed in her work national variations in neoliberal transitions, political mores, valuation cultures, and economic knowledge. Ongoing collaborative work with Kieran Healy focuses on the rise, consolidation and social consequences of new classificatory regimes powered by digital data and algorithms. Other current research interests include the microsociology of courtroom exchanges (with Roi Livne); stratification processes in the social sciences (with Etienne Ollion); the politics of wine classification and taste in France and the United States (with Rebecca Elliott and Olivier Jacquet); and the social dynamics of sovereign ratings (with Caleb Scoville). Professor Fourcade’s work has appeared in American Journal of SociologyAmerican Sociological ReviewTheory and SocietySocio-Economic ReviewAmerican Behavioral ScientistAnnual Review of Sociology, Journal of Economic Perspectives and other outlets. She is a recipient of the Lewis Coser award for theoretical agenda setting, the American Sociological Association's Distinguished Book Award and the Ludwik Fleck prize for outstanding book in the area of science and technology studies from the Society for the Social Studies of Science.
