Associate Professor Director of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality


Research interests center on sociology of gender and sexualities, the sociology of culture, and the sociology of work and occupations. A central focus of her work is finding new ways to make visible the taken-for-granted cultural assumptions about gender and sexuality that serve to naturalize and reproduce social inequality. She is currently working on a historical sociology book project titled “Conceptualizing People: Exemplary Cases and the Disciplines of Gender.” The book is part of a larger collaboration with multi-media artist, Chase Joynt, and will be accompanied by an experimental film project.

Broadly speaking, she work in the fields of new media and twentieth and twenty-first century American literature and culture. Within these areas, my teaching and research focus on digital games, electronic literature, virtual worlds, television, cinema, the novel, and media theory.
