My name is Dr. Cliff Leek and I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Northern Colorado and President of the American Men's Studies Association. My primary research interest is in the ways in which individuals and groups in positions of privilege engage in social justice activism.
I write, speak, and consult on issues of masculinity, whiteness, workplace inequalities, violence, and activism.
My research has appeared in academic journals including Global Social Welfare, the Journal of Interpersonal Violence, and the Journal of Men's Studies as well as in a number of books.
I also engage in public sociology - writing and speaking for non-academic audiences. You can find my work on blogs such as OnTheMARC.org and Masculinities101.com.
