Benjamin Eleanor Adam
B.A. Sociology, City College of New York
My work focuses on gender and sexuality in relation to pornography, technology, and psychoanalysis. I am especially interested in developing non-representational theories of engagement with material and other technologies of pornography including films, communication technologies, virtual environments, and remotely-controlled sexual devices (teledildonics).
In Gender Studies, I regularly teach Sex Wars: Feminist Perspective on Pornography, Queer Theory, Transgender Theory and Politics, Classics of Feminist Theory, Introduction to Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Gender, Sexuality, and Science. In Sociology, I have taught Law, Society and Civil Rights, Classical Sociological Theory, Sociology of Sexuality, and Criminology
