Congratulations to Professor Amin Ghaziani for receiving two “Top Cited Article, 2018-2019” awards from Wiley publishing . His articles, Performative Progressiveness: Accounting for New Forms of Inequality in the Gayborhood (co-Authored with doctoral student Adriana Brodyn) and Cultural Archipelagos: New Directions in the Study of Sexuality and Space were both published in City & Community – making them both among the top cited articles from that journal.
Performative Progressiveness looks at the co-occurrence of progressive mindsets and homonegative actions among straight residents of urban gay districts. Brodyn and Ghaziani describe the subtle forms that discrimination takes in a contemporary context of increasing acceptance and integration. Prof. Ghaziani’s second publication, Cultural Archipelagos, is part of a special symposium on queer urbanisms. In the article, he describes the diversity of queer spaces, particularly the forms they take beyond big city gaybourhoods.
