In addition to my ethnographic examination of the “crisis” and excesses of suburban masculinity” in mixed martial arts, I have studied gender and race outside of the gym walls. This is seen in my paper employing discursive analysis of how the 2010 Super Bowl commercials sold a traditional brand of white masculinity and the need to “wear the pants” to the American public that I co-authored with fellow graduate-student Madison Van Oort (published in Signs: Journal of Women and Culture in Society, 2013).

We also used this publication as the basis for a chapter on how to critically engage with the crisis of masculinity discourse. The chapter is part of the Teaching Gender and Sex in Contemporary America volume edited by Kristin Haltinner and Ryanne Pilgram (Springer 2016).
