About Corie J. Hammers

Professor Hammers main research project has been one of examining lesbian/queer public sexual cultures and sexual spaces in Canada and the United States. She is particularly interested in interrogating the linkages between sexuality, space and identity formations, and the sexual politics within nonnormative sexual communities. She is using insights stemming from her ethnographic investigations of these lesbian/queer sexual spaces to examine the intersections of feminist and queer theory. She continues to do research on lesbian/queer sexual spaces. She has just begun a new project exploring the politics of (non)belonging among African American women within the LGBT community and their networking practices.
Hammers has published essays in a variety of journals such as Sexualities, Journal of Contemporary Ethnography, Journal of Gender Studies and Journal of Homosexuality. Her teaching interests include feminist theory, queer theory, sociological theory, gender and globalization, the sociology of gender and sexuality, sociology of sport and the politics of food.
EDUCATION: B.S, Texas A&M University; M.S., Portland State University; Ph.D., University of Oklahoma.
Hammers has been teaching at Macalester since 2009.
