Mark Provence

Undergraduate Degree: Stanford University, B.A. English 

Research Interests: Broadly speaking, I’m interested looking at the intersection between masculinity and sexual identity. Currently I’m working on a qualitative study of gay men’s experiences in therapy groups with straight men. I’m especially intrigued by the concept of heterophobia, or gay men’s fear/avoidance of straight men.

Professional Aspirations: My ideal career would allow for balance between clinical work, research and teaching, with an emphasis on masculinity/sexuality issues

Expected Graduation Date: 2016

Hobbies: Reading, haunting bookstores, running, cooking, movies, road trips

Favorite Color: Blue
