Brandon Andrew Robinson is a doctoral student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Texas. Brandon's foundational research interest is in the area of sexualities, where he is interested in how other social categoies (e.g. race & gender) are constitutive of sexualities and vice versa. Brandon also has interests in studying how health & HIV/AIDS discourses construct our understandings of social categories, as well as, our beliefs about sex & pleasure. Lastly, Brandon is interested in researching ideas about spatialities, specifically queer cyberspaces.
Brandon's research on homonormativity in the Netherlands is published in the journal of Sexuality Research & Social Policy. His article with Dr. Salvador Vidal-Ortiz on the "down low" and Craigslist.org is published in the journal of Deviant Behavior. His quantitative piece with Dr. David A. Moskowitz on the eroticism of Internet cruising as a self-contained behavior is forthcoming in Culture, Health & Sexuality. His book chapter on barebacking as a queer utopian practice is forthcoming in a 2013 anthology.
His thesis project will be investigating the role of cyberspace in shaping sexualities for men seeking men online for sexual purposes. Specifically, the thesis is looking at friendship/networking, race and the (cyber-)body, and sexual health/HIV in the lives of self-identified gay men on Adam4Adam.com.
Prior to coming to UT, Brandon received his B.A. in Women's & Gender Studies and Sociology at the American University in Washington, DC. While in DC, Brandon interned for the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition and for Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive.
