Alexander Davis is a sociologist who specializes in culture, gender, and sexualities. His current research traces the historical emergence of gender-segregated public restrooms in the United States and investigates how various social institutions have arbitrated conflicts about their separation and equity over the course of the 20th century. His other projects have ranged from ethnographic explorations of the gendered and sexual dimensions of fashion to quantitative analyses of attitudes about women’s rights and gay rights around the world.
