Author Biography - Peter Robinson

Peter Robinson is taking up a lectureship in sociology at Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, in July 2011. Over the last decade, he has taught courses in sociology and sexuality and gender studies at RMIT University and Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. His first book, The Changing World of Gay Men was awarded the inaugural Raewyn Connell prize in 2010 by The Australian Sociological Association for the best first book in Australian Sociology. Peter's research interests include the life course of gay men and ageing, sexuality and social justice, homophobia and exclusion. He is writing a second book for Palgrave Macmillan-on ageing in the gay world, which is due for submission in 2012. Tentatively entitled Ageing in the Gay World, the second book is based on an international sample of more than 90 gay men, aged 18-87. It too uses the life-story method that Ken Plummer pioneered and will continue the work that Peter began in The Changing World on the significance of generations in understanding the lived experience of gay men, and includes interviews with men from Mumbai, Hong Kong, and Auckland, as well as from principal cities in Australia, England, and the United States.
