Ian Whalen
Sociology

I graduated from The University of Mississippi with a BA in History (2015) and a MA in Sociology (2017). My Master’s thesis titled, “Discreet Only: An Exploration of Discreet Practices in a Mississippi Town,” explored how out gay and bisexual men navigate and construct their identity on Grindr. My general research interests include Gender, Men and Masculinities, Virtual Methodologies and Qualitative Research Methods.
