P1030992-001Welcome! 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 theĀ 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. I’m currently completing a book, Black Boys Apart: The Rise of Single-Sex Public Education. OtherĀ 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 in spring 2016: Survey of Social Theory and The Masculine Mystique. Check back later for my spring office hours.
