- Cinema and Gender
- Sex Work
Theoretically grounded in social constructionism and postmodernism, Rodger’s current scholarship focuses on queer masculinities, analysis and critique of heteronormativity, and the problematization of desire and pleasure. His classroom privileges queer and constructivist pedagogies, emphasizing learners as critical thinkers and meaning makers, interrogating the nature of the professor/student relationship, and connecting the classroom with personal experience and broader communities.
