I’m an Assistant Professor of Education at Tufts University, and a Faculty Affiliate with the Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Beginning Fall 2014 I’ll be an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Tufts.
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. (Please see my CNN op-ed on the topic.) Other research examines the affective character of masculine dignity, cultural templates of urban masculinity, and the temporal dimensions of boyhood.
