Lionel Cantú
Assistant Professor, Sociology

Lionel Cantú specializes in the ways in which sexuality influences migration. His dissertation focused on Mexican men who have sex with men and how sexual identity changes depending in different cultural contexts. His work straddles the areas of sexuality studies and immigration studies. Other interests include race and ethnicity, and Latinos in the U.S. He comes to UCSC from UC Irvine, where he earned his Ph.D. in social science. Although based at UCSC, he will spend the 1999-00 year as a UC Davis postdoctoral researcher, studying how American gay culture has become globalized and commodified.

She is currently completing a project about women who worked in the silent film industry and later turned to writing.
