Emily Fox is a PhD student in the department of Sociology with a doctoral emphasis in Feminist Studies. Her research considers how gender (particularly masculinities), sexuality, and other social positions shape experiential aspects of friendship. Her MA thesis used nationally representative survey data to show that young adults' reported closeness to their best friend is not only stratified by gender, but also ethnoracial identity and socioeconomic class. Moving forward, she plans to qualitatively investigate how men understand, create, maintain, and benefit from their friendships with each other.
