Current Research:

Trevor Hoppe's research analyzes the social control of sex by institutions of medicine, law, and public health. He is currently working on a book manuscript, "Punishing Disease" (under contract with University of California Press) that analyzes punitive and coercive responses to HIV and other infectious diseases and the implications these developments have for law, public health, and social justice. The second book project, "The War on Sex," (co-edited with David Halperin and forthcoming with Duke University Press) is a collection of essays analyzing the punitive social control of sex. In addition to these book projects, Hoppe is also researching and publishing on the growth and impact of American sex offender registries.
