Korie Tinch draws upon queer theory and the social sciences broadly to investigate the construction and maintenance of sexual identities through popular culture. Korie approaches this topic through the lens of contemporary media consumption, especially underground music movements, reality television, and digital media. Korie’s most recent line of research focuses on the roles of gender and sexuality among “Juggalos,” the vibrant subculture rooted in a dedicated fandom surrounding hip hop group Insane Clown Posse.
