Professor Eric Anderson is an American sociologist known for his research on sport, masculinities, sexualities and homophobia. He shows an increasingly positive relationship between gay male athletes and sport, as well as a growing movement of young heterosexual men’s masculinity becoming softer and more inclusive. Professor Anderson also researches matters related to men’s monogamy, men's improving recognition of bisexuality, and the increased acceptance of young heterosexual men kissing. He has written twelve books, many of them award winners and best sellers. Professor Anderson has previously taught at UC-Irvine, SUNY Stony Brook, and the University of Bath. He can be hired for consultancy or talks.
