My research interests include cultural production, sexual representation, feminist media studies, and cultural studies of social class, with essays in a number of collections and such journals as Key Words: A Journal of Cultural Materialism, the International Journal of Communication, Signs, Journal of Communication, GLQ, Feminist Media Studies, and Screen. In most projects, these categories combine and redefine each other while addressing questions of personal, community and institutional power and autonomy. My work also addresses questions of feeling, identification and everyday life, in the interest of studying communication practices in as deeply and broadly contextualized a way as I can, and in the spirit--when it makes sense--of optimism and social solidarity. New projects on artist/scholar collaboration and on friendship as political form speak to those questions and commitments. Love and Money: Queers, Class and Cultural Production, a 2014 finalist in LGBT Studies for a Lambda Literary Award, is available from NYU Press.
