St. Lawrence News


Associate Professor of Gender Studies R. Danielle Egan has been named to the editorial board of the journal Sexuality and Culture.

The journal "is a forum for the discussion and analysis of ethical, cultural, psychological, social, and political issues related to sexual relationships and sexual behavior. These issues include, but are not limited to: sexual consent and sexual responsibility; sexual harassment and freedom of speech and association; sexual privacy; censorship and pornography; impact of film/literature on sexual relationships; and university and governmental regulation of intimate relationships, such as interracial relationships and student-professor relationships."

Egan will co-edit, with Gail Hawkes, a special issue on childhood sexuality. She presented the 2007 Frank P. Piskor Faculty Lecture at St. Lawrence on the topic "Producing Pathology through the Pedagogy of Purity: Childhood Sexuality and the Social Purity Movement."

A faculty member at St. Lawrence since 2000, Egan is a graduate of Goucher College and earned the Ph.D. at Boston College. She has published work in Critical Sociology; Body and Society; Deviant Behavior; and The Journal of Psychoanalysis, Society and Culture. She is the author of the book Dancing for Dollars and Paying for Love: The Relationships Between Exotic Dancers and Their Regulars and one of three editors of the book of essays Flesh For Fantasy: Producing and Consuming Exotic Dance. In addition to her work on exotic dance, she has written on post-9/11 rhetoric, pedagogy and popular culture. Egan received the Louis and Frances Maslow Award at St. Lawrence in 2005.
