Dr. Jason Whitesel
Dr. Jason Whitesel writes, teaches, and gives talks on queer studies, stigmatized groups’ embodied resistance to injustice, and the intersectionalities of race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, body weight, appearance, age, disability, and nationality, and how interlocking identities define some lives as less/more valuable than others. He has authored Fat Gay Men: Girth, Mirth, and the Politics of Stigma, and coedited a special issue on “Fat Activism” for Fat Studies, in addition to publishing in peer-reviewed journals and collections. He is jointly employed in Sociology and Gender Studies at Illinois State University.
