CJ Pascoe is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Colorado College.
Her book, Dude, You’re a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School, won the American Educational Research Association’s 2007 Book of the Year Award. It documents the relationship between homophobic harassment, heterosexism and masculinity in high school. In it she suggests ways we might begin to redefine gender norms that are damaging to both boys and girls.
Before coming to Colorado College, CJ spent two years working with the Digital Youth Project, part of the MacArthur Foundation’s initiative in learning and new media. Along with her co-researchers and under the guidance of Mimi Ito CJ co-authored Hanging Out, Messing Around and Geeking Out: Living and Learning with New Media which is the largest qualitative study of youth new media use to date.
CJ’s research has been featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Toronto Globe and Mail, American Sexuality Magazine and Inside Higher Ed. She has appeared in the Frontline documentary Growing Up Online and the independent documentary about the murder of Gwen Araujo, Trained in the Ways of Men.
With Professor Natalie Boero she is currently co-authoring a book entitled Anas, Mias and Wannas: Identity and Community in a Pro-Ana Subculture. In it they examine online pro-eating disorder communities.
She received her B.A. in Sociology from Brandeis University in 1996 and a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley in 2006.
