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. I’m currently a Visiting Assistant 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.
