Accepting New Graduate Students


A key focus of my research and teaching is the interplay of gender norms with legal and social governance of sexual conduct. In this broad area, I am currently undertaking interview-based research about students' application of anti-sexual-violence education in sexual interactions. I also continue to research and work with community partners in the sex industry; my research in this area touches on labour relations and working conditions, management, the performance of gender, class and race.
