me CollinsResearch Interests

My research is interdisciplinary, residing where intersectionality, British cultural studies, and performativity meet. I analyze sport, fashion, and social activism from a sociological standpoint to highlight how identities are constructed and maintained, exaggerated and muted, across the many domains of power of our media-saturated culture. I pay particular attention to women, gender performances, LGBTQ issues, and race.
