Sociologist and cultural worker

September 2015 News and Events

I’m very pleased to announce I’ll be a Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology with expertise in Gender and Sexuality at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, this academic year.

I’ll be in Central Pennsylvania at Franklin & Marshall College at the Alice Drum Women’s Center early September, leading a training on feminist leadership and problem-solving for Center board members.

Looks like Central and Southeastern PA are the place to be this year.  See you there?

Nicki, Taylor, and the VMAs

I recently spoke with AFP reporter Shaun Tandon about Nicki Minaj’s comments on race, gender, embodiment, and the MTV Video Music Award nominations.  The piece was picked up by several news outlets, including The Nation. I was pleased to be quoted alongside University at Albany, SUNY, professor Dr. Janell Hobson and cultural critic Cate Young, who blogs at Batty Mamzelle.
