Research interests

Using qualitative data such as personal narratives, my research investigates intimate Black senses of place in typically rural and Southern (U.S.) contexts of anti-black violence and sexual stigma. A long-term aim is fostering connections between critical understandings of race and assessments of health and well-being. I engage with ongoing discussions in Black studies, queer studies, public health, and Black geographies. My work has been supported by the Ford Foundation, National Science Foundation (US), and Social Science Research Council.
