Kenneth Gourlay

Kenneth Gourlay is in his first year of the PhD Sociology program. After a prior career in Internet software development and an unanticipated experience with the criminal legal system, he decided to refocus his life toward social justice and academic research. He is now focusing his studies on social narratives and discourse regarding sex and sexuality and the harms they perpetuate. In addition to studying at WSU, Kenneth works as an online marketing consultant and is a wooden boat enthusiast.
