SOCL 245: Sociology of Popular Culture
SOCL 324: Sociology of Sport
Currently my research interests include the sociology of popular music and gender. My recent publications on popular music performers include analyses of drug use among musicians (Deviant Behavior), performers' ideologies (Qualitative Sociology), female rock 'n' roll performers (Gender & Society), the culture of bluegrass musicians, and nonverbal dimensions of music performance (both in Popular Music & Society). My work in the sociology of gender has resulted in a number of publications on various aspects of interaction between doctors and both female and male patients (Language in Society, Sociology of Health and Illness, and Sociological Focus). I am currently writing an article that examines the structure and strength of sexual scripts among male and female college students. I also have published a theoretical article on sociology and literature (Sociological Inquiry) and a practical piece on using films to teach the sociology of popular music (Teaching Sociology).
