Katrina Kimport

Katrina Kimport is a qualitative sociologist whose research focuses on gender, sexuality, and social movements. Dr. Kimport's research engages two central themes: understanding women’s personal and social experience of abortion; and investigating the cultural negotiation of controversial social issues related to sexuality—specifically, abortion and same-sex marriage. She is currently undertaking a comparison of the abortion rights movement and the gay & lesbian movement to understand, from a social movements perspective, how and when their trajectories have overlapped and diverged over the past 40 years. Dr. Kimport's work has been published in the American Sociological Review, Gender & Society, and Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health. She is the author of Queering Marriage: Challenging Family Formation in the United States (Rutgers University Press) and co-author, with Dr. Jennifer Earl, of Digitally Enabled Social Change (MIT Press). Dr. Kimport received her BA from Yale University and her PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara. To contact Dr. Kimport: Email her or call 510-986-8947.
