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.”

Recently, Moseby was an invited participant at a meeting of scholars, grantmakers, and AIDS activists to begin a dialogue leading to an agenda for new histories of HIV/AIDS: "Foundations, Nonprofits, and HIV/AIDS in the United States: New Histories of an Epidemic" Rockefeller Archive Center, Sleepy Hollow, New York, June 13-15, 2017. In addition to teaching courses within his specialty areas, Moseby teaches the course Introduction to Sociology.

Prior to joining Drexel in the very cold winter quarter of 2015/16, 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, Moseby was born in Little Rock and raised in rural Arkansas in counties within and just outside of the Mississippi Delta.
