Welcome! I’m an Assistant Professor of Sociology, and a Faculty Affiliate with the Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, at Tufts University.
My research interests are in the areas of masculinity and gender, education, children and youth, culture, and feminist theory. I’m currently completing a book, Black Boys Apart: The Rise of Single-Sex Public Education. Other research examines young men and dignity, and the temporal dimensions of boyhood.
Students can find links to relevant sites to the right, as well as other resources on the Teaching & Advising page. I’m teaching two sociology seminars this spring: Survey of Social Theory and The Masculine Mystique. My spring drop-in office hours are Mondays from 10:30-11:30 and Wednesdays from 1-2, and by appointment. In fall 2016 I’m teaching the Sociology of Higher Education and The Masculine Mystique.
