Dr. Kelsy Burke is a sociologist who studies conservative Christianity and gender and sexual politics in contemporary America. Her book, Christians Under Covers: Evangelicals and Sexual Pleasure on the Internet (forthcoming, University of California Press) is a virtual ethnography of how evangelical Christians use digital media for the ideological and practical tools to remain committed to their faith while pursuing sexual pleasure. She teaches courses on cyberspace, gender and sexuality, privilege and inequality, and research methods. For more information on Dr. Burke's research and teaching, visit her website.
