Adjunct Professorial Lecturer
Department of Anthropology
Dr. Nikki Lane has a rich interdisciplinary research program that borrows from feminist and queer traditions within Linguistic Anthropology, Cultural Studies, and Critical Geographies. In addition to addressing broad issues of sexuality within American popular culture, her work addresses the lived experiences and cultural expressions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer individuals within the African Diaspora. Through grappling both with cultural expressions and lived experiences of individuals at various intersections of social experience, her work pushes toward explicating the interrelationships between race, gender, sexuality, and class.
