Matthew AndlerFall courses: Basic Social Questions

About my work: “We categorize individuals as seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshmen; as scientists, journalists, and athletes; as queer and straight. My research focuses on the ways in which we actually—and especially the ways in which we ought to—socially categorize individuals with respect to gender and sexuality. Currently, I’m working on a series of papers about masculinity. I’m especially interested in the very possibility of what might be called revisionary projects in masculinity, which—recognizing that masculinity is a source of value for many individuals—aim to create healthy, prosocial ways of being masculine.” (Read more about Andler.)

Recent moment of zen: “I’ve spent a lot of time riding my bike around Easton. A few days ago, I took a shortcut through a field, and about a half dozen groundhogs scurried away into some tall grass. They were so serious!”

What I like about Easton so far: “The groundhogs!”
