Research Interests


Before Columbia, Joshua conducted two research projects at Princeton University. His junior paper studied racial segregation within and between gay bars in NYC, suggesting that gay bars follow suburban trends of White flight. His thesis explored how neo-Bourdiusian capital illuminates trends of gay spaces assimilating in London and Manchester. His current research examines gay networks' formation, specifically how gay men prioritize and reject people based on location, class, and identity.
