I’m an Assistant Professor of Sociology (on leave 2015), and a Faculty Affiliate with the Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, at Tufts University. Beginning January 2015 I’ll be a Visiting Professor in the Department of Sociology at Portland State University.
My research interests are in the areas of masculinity and gender, education, children and youth, culture, and feminist theory. A current book project (under contract with the University of Minnesota Press) is an ethnography of two all-male public high schools. Other research examines the affective character of masculine dignity, cultural templates of urban masculinity, and the temporal dimensions of boyhood.
