I am an MA candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Washington with research interests in trans* and queer studies, embodiment, sexuality, and technologies. My master's thesis -- currently in progress -- is an inquiry into the practice of gender segregation in public bathrooms. Using group interview methods, I seek to understand the discourses that arise when people are confronted with the possibilities of configuring bathroom spaces in new and previously unimagined ways that can threaten cherished and taken-for-granted social boundaries.
