Kate Averett is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology. Kate studies gender, sexuality, and the social construction of childhood in the United States. Her dissertation research is on discourses and practices of homeschooling in Texas, specifically examining how gendered beliefs about childhood impact what we think children need out of education – and who can best provide it.
