After teaching at Brandeis University and the NYU until 1994, then at École normale supérieure in Paris until 2014, he has become a Professor of sociology and gender studies at Paris 8 University. His work focuses on sexual and racial politics in France and the United States, with special emphasis on immigration. He published L’Inversion de la question homosexuelle (2005), Droit conjugal et unions de même sexe: mariage, partenariat et concubinage dans neuf pays européens (with Kees Waaldijk, 2008) and Le sexe politique.
