About me

Robyn Ryle started life in one small town in Kentucky and ended up in another just down the river in Indiana. In between, she got her undergraduate degree at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, and her Ph.D. at Indiana-University, Bloomington. When she’s not writing, she teaches sociology and gender studies at a small liberal arts college. Her book, SHE/HE/THEY/ME: FOR THE SISTERS, MISTERS AND BINARY RESISTERS, is forthcoming from Sourcebooks in March 2019. It’s a nonfiction book about gender told as a choose your own adventure.  She has stories and essays in CALYX Journal, Paper Darts, Gawker, Midwestern Gothic, Big Truths, Bartleby Snopes, and Whiskeypaper, among others (check out her full list of publications here). She’s also written a sociology of gender textbook, Questioning Gender: A Sociological Exploration, currently in its third edition.
