Patrick McCreery’s teaching and research interests lie in the areas of sexual politics, family life and the role of the symbolic child figure in the United States. At Gallatin, he teaches interdisciplinary seminars that explore the politics of childhood, contested notions of "family," and artistic representations of HIV-AIDS. He is currently working on a book that contextualizes Anita Bryant’s 1977 “Save Our Children” campaign within national debates at the time over sexual autonomy, children's perceived innocence and the rapid expansion of civil rights in the 1960s and '70s. Prof. McCreery has published essays in journals such as GLQ, New Labor Forum, Radical History Review and Social Text, and he co-edited the anthology Out at Work: Building a Gay-Labor Alliance (University of Minnesota Press). An accomplished administrator, he is a past recipient of Gallatin’s Adviser of Distinction Award.
