Jen Jack Gieseking, Environmental Psychology program alum and current Postdoctoral Fellow at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine recently published a Blog OpEd for the Huffington Post on the contextual implications of the closing of the only bar dedicated to serving lesbians in San Francisco. Her post was followed up with an interview on HuffPost Live. In her analysis, Jack addresses the role of the gender biases and gentrification in the closing of The Lexington.
More broadly, Jack’s research focuses on co-productions of space and identity in digital and material environments, with a focus on sexual and gender identities. For more on Jack’s research and professional endeavors, visit http://jgieseking.org/
