Natalie Kouri-Towe is an interdisciplinary feminist and sexuality studies scholar working on solidarity, kinship, and attachment in social movements and activist responses to war and gender/sexuality-based violence. More recently, she has been working in the area of gender and sexuality pedagogies.

She has worked previously as a Lecturer in the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program at the University of Pittsburgh (2017/18) and as a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Thorneloe University at Laurentian in Sudbury, Ontario (2016/17).

Her research has been published in both academic and non-academic venues on topics related to solidarity, kinship, and attachment in social movements, queer activism, and masculinity in conditions of war in the Middle East. She is currently working in two new areas of research; the first examines responses to the "Syrian refugee crisis," and the second investigates sexuality pedagogies in the contemporary classroom. 

book manuscript (in progress), tentatively titled Solidarity at Risk, examines feminist and queer solidarity under neoliberalism. She is also editing a book on gender and sexuality pedagogies.
