Kevin M. Moseby, PhD is an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Sociology. His research specialties and teaching interests are in the areas of the social and cultural studies of biomedicine/health, particularly as those domains intersect with and through the institutions of race/sexuality/gender, social movements/community advocacy, HIV/AIDS, racial health disparities, science and technological studies, and Black Studies. His current research examines the salience of race over the course of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States, documenting how HIV/AIDS prevention practices and knowledge “crossed the color line.” In addition to teaching courses within his specialty areas, Professor Moseby will be teaching Introduction to Sociology.
Prior to joining Drexel in the very cold winter quarter of 2015/16, Professor Moseby was a UC President Postdoctoral Fellow in the (Medical) Sociology program of the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. In his dissertation years, he also spent time as a Fellow in the Department of Black Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Before all of his training in California, Professor Moseby was born in Little Rock and raised in rural Arkansas in counties within and just outside of the Mississippi Delta.
