Biography

Timothy Haverda is a sociology Ph.D. student at the University of Oregon. Before coming to Eugene, he earned his B.A. in sociology and M.S. in sociology at the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2017 and 2019, respectively.

His research interests include men and masculinities, gender, social movements, and critical theory. His master’s thesis, “Hybridizing Masculinity: Gender Identity Negotiation Among Men’s Rights Activists,” is a qualitative study of the men’s rights movement using fifteen (15) interviews with self-proclaimed men’s rights activists through the lens hybrid masculinity theory. Some of this research can be seen here.

He is currently working on several projects:

  • a critical discourse analysis of pick-up artist gender discourse that examines the way power, labor, and cathexis is articulated through popular blogs;
  • a digital ethnography of the father’s rights movement that examines how the movement maps three collective frames for social action: (1) essentializing fatherhood, (2) articulating anti-feminist and post-feminist discourses, and (3) framing joint custody through appropriating liberal feminism;
  • differences and similarities in the gender politics of 2016 U.S. presidential primary voters, with special attention paid to how respondents identify as feminist or not;
  • how political ideologies and political party identification lead to polarization for scientific evidence regarding gun ownership.

His research is publicly available through his profile on ResearchGate.
