I am a sociologist who studies young people, inequality and education. My book about sexuality and gender in high school, Dude, You're a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School is available from the University of California Press.
Currently I am writing a book examining gendered, classed, sexual and racial inequality at a progressive high school entitled American High School: Coming of Age in an Unequal Time. This book builds on my previous research projects on GLBTQ youth, young people's new media use, and bullying.
Along with professor Tristan Bridges, I recently edited Exploring Masculinities: Identity, Inequality, Continuity and Change which takes a fresh look at contemporary masculinities addressing varied lines of inequality: historical, racial, classed, sexual and embodied, among others.
