R. Danielle Egan (Board Member) is Professor of Gender, Sexuality and Intersectionality Studies at Connecticut College. Her research examines the ways in which our society creates and polices sexual acceptability. She is particularly interested in the creative ways people negotiate, resist and are, at times, complicit with dominant cultural views on sexuality. This interest has been at the heart of her research on the sex industry which was the topic of her first book Dancing for Dollars and Paying for Love: The Relationships Between Exotic Dancers and their Regular Customers and more recently, in her writing on the history of ideas on the child and sexuality with Gail Hawkes in Theorizing the Sexual Child in Modernity. Danielle’s current book, Becoming Sexual: A Critical Appraisal of the Sexualization of Girls analyzes the popular rhetoric on sexualization to unpack the gendered, classed and racialized assumptions at work in this movement.
