Landon’s scholarship spans the domains of gender, religion, public opinion, family, sexualities, and inequality. He is particularly interested in how gender and sexuality intersect with religion, public opinion, and inequality. Some current projects explore the following topics using large, nationally-representative surveys: (1) gender differences in religiosity, (2) religion and gender attitudes, (3) the gender wage gap, and (4) public opinion about gay and lesbian Americans.
Landon’s recent publications, based on older research streams, include an article on feminist science studies and two others on religion and politics:
2014. “The Question of Subjectivity in Three Emerging Feminist Science Studies Frameworks: Feminist Postcolonial Science Studies, New Feminist Materialisms, and Queer Ecologies.” Women’s Studies International Forum, 44(3), 10-16.
Forthcoming. “When Fringe Goes Mainstream Again: A Comparative Textual Analysis of the Tea Party Movement’s Contract from America and the Republican Party Platform.” Politics, Religion & Ideology.
2013. “When Fringe Goes Mainstream: A Sociohistorical Content Analysis of the Christian Coalition’s Contract with the American Family and the Republican Party Platform.” Politics, Religion & Ideology, 14(1), 94-113.
In addition to research, Landon also values effective pedagogy. Actively engaged with the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), Landon has written a forthcoming review of How College Works for Teaching Sociology, produced a teaching guide on the topic of Work and Family for the Gender & Society in the Classroom project, and is completing a certificate in college pedagogy.
