From 1994-2019 she was Professor of Communication at UMass Amherst, where she also served as Chair from 2009-13. Henderson writes about cultural production, queer and feminist media studies, and social class. Her book Love and Money: Queers, Class, and Cultural Production (NYU, 2013) was a 2014 finalist for a Lambda Literary Award. New work addresses artist/scholar collaboration and expressive culture as research practice—the ways scholars use cultural forms beyond books and articles to conduct and communicate their research, and to create knowledge for communities and collaborators on campus and off.
