On this episode, I am joined by Dr. Adriane Brown, Assistant Professor and Director of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her research focuses on contemporary American youth, examining the ways that youth develop gendered, racial, and sexual subjectivities in different spaces--both physical and virtual.

She is currently working on a book manuscript that examines the salience of gender and race in high school policy debate.

Adriane teaches courses on a wide range of topics, including youth studies, popular culture, feminist theory, and masculinities, in addition to core introductory courses in the field of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies. She also serves as director of the Anne Pedersen Women's Resource Center at Augsburg College. Outside of work, Adriane enjoys hiking, traveling, and eating with her wife, Jess, and their son, Sam.
