Jon's writing on cinema and contemporary art has been published in many anthologies, catalogues and journals, and he co-edited (with Sam Ashby) Little Joe magazine #5. His dissertation-in-progress, The Fountain: Art, Sex and Queer Pedagogy in San Francisco, 1945-1995, focuses on the intertwining of artistic and sexual experimentation in the Bay Area through the lens of pedagogy.
