Among Your Hounds of Love | in-progress/2020 | sound | colour | 14:55 mins
Between wrestling matches two boys discuss the nature of their ambiguous relationship, the way they pass the time in their small river town, and the culture of bullying in the age of social media. Their relationships to their mobile devices mark their drive to connect in the face of the anachronistic landscape of their town. The voice of a narrator, who is compelled to ask unanswerable questions, responds to the images.
My Most Handsome Monster | 2014 | sound | colour | 13:10 mins
Two separate BDSM scenarios unfold between queer sex workers and their play partners from imperially charged landscapes, rendered mystical. The project considers the slippery areas between liberation and re-inscription, real and imagined, to consider how BDSM practices might open out historical narratives around race, bodies, sex, and power.
Forward into the Afternoon | 2014 | sound | colour | 5:41 mins
After an instructional road trip to the ocean a figure communes with stray dogs to build seaside graveyards, petite and monumental sand mountains, and nourishes the sand graves with fresh breast milk. The project was made with collaborator Sadie Lune.
The Eddies | 2018 | sound | colour | 16:10 mins
​From above and below ground, a man named Eddie describes flood lines, levees and trivial histories of the crumbling infrastructure of Memphis, TN. In this same city, the filmmaker, a recent transsexual transplant, watches war films and contemplates masculine connectivity as he attempts to integrate into the American South. He posts a Craigslist ad asking men to masturbate on-camera with their firearms. He receives a single response from a man who’s name is also Eddie. *Jury Awards: Kurzfilm Hamburg, Chicago Underground Film Festival, and FLEX: Florida Experimental Film Festival*

The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) supports cutting-edge research, teaching and outreach activities in gender, sexuality and feminist studies. We aim to produce knowledge that is accessible to the public and in dialogue with our local communities, and we are committed to creating a more just, equal, responsive and creative world. Our undergraduate teaching program in Gender, Sexuality, Feminist and Social Justice Studies trains students in critical, intersectional and transnational approaches to study. We also support the interdisciplinary Graduate Option in Gender and Women’s Studies, which offers graduate training in gender studies and feminist theories, methods and research.

Through community and university partnerships, we host public events, symposia, lectures, and a speaker series on a range of topics. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we support student internships in gender, sexuality and feminist studies, fund student awards on community service and academic excellence, host visiting professors from around the world, and organize public events and workshops on a number of issues, from current struggles for justice to emergent research methodologies and advocacy in the field. The Institute also gratefully acknowledges support from the Dean of Arts and its other institutional benefactors.
