E. Cabell Hankinson Gathman is currently finishing up her doctorate in sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she researches self-presentation on social media and changing concepts of authenticity. She teaches courses on social inequality in general and gender, sexuality, ability, and race in particular, and serves as chair for 5-2-1, a non-profit advocacy group for bisexual and pansexual people in Wisconsin. She lives in Madison with her husband, two small children, and four cats.
Her hair is pink, her favorite color is rainbow variegated leopard print, and her spectacles are many and varied. You can follow her on Twitter and Tumblr at @cabell, which is the advantage of having a weird name. (It rhymes with “Scrabble.”)
