I’m associate professor of sociology at Tufts University and co-chair for the Boston Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality. I study masculine power, neoliberal governance, feminist theory, and Black politics. I’m the 2018 recipient of Tufts University’s Recognition of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence Award.
