me CollinsResearch Interests

Grounded in intersectionality, qualitative methods, and social justice, my research rests at the confluence of cultural studies, social medicine (and, more broadly, medical humanities), public health, and sport. I focus on the body, viewing them on a continuum from the hyper-ability of elite athletes to the social epidemiology of illness, while maintaining particular attention on women, race, gender performances, and LGBTQ+ issues. The broader goal of my research is to highlight inequitable cultural understandings of the body and to work collaboratively with colleagues to redress them.
