Bio
Nicole Angotti is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology. Her research focuses on social, cultural and institutional dimensions of health and wellbeing, with particular attention to the incorporation of global public health interventions in local contexts; HIV/AIDS, aging and rural livelihoods; and LGBT populations and politics. She also has secondary interests in methodological issues and innovations in field-based research. Two projects on which she is working currently include understanding the causes and consequences of the HIV epidemic in older ages in rural, post-apartheid South Africa (funded by NIH-National Institute on Aging), and investigating when, where and why state-sponsored homophobia emerges in some African countries and its consequences for African sexual minorities. Some of her recent work has been published in Gender & Society, Social Science & Medicine, Qualitative Sociology and Population and Development Review. Before joining AU, Angotti was a Hewlett Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow with the African Population Research and Training program at the University of Colorado-Boulder and the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa.
