Areas of Research Interest
Jeremy Robinett works within critical frameworks to explore how perceptions of gender affect and are affected by leisure choice. Jeremy is interested in exploring gender and activity from three vantages: contexts, bodies, and identities. First, Jeremy wants to explore the possibility that people negotiate gender expression and activity choice as contextually dependent. Secondly, Jeremy wants to explore the role of the body and its abilities in mediating perceptions of gender-appropriateness. Thirdly, Jeremy is interested in exploring the tensions resulting from differences in individual’s ascribed and avowed gendered identities throughout their life course.
