GWS Professor Keisha Lindsay has won the Vilas Associates Award, which recognizes new and on-going research of the highest quality and significance.
Professor Lindsay’s research and teaching interests include black feminist theories, black masculinities, and gender-based politics in the African diaspora. Her new book project, Black Ladies and the Art of Resistance: Intellectuals, Athletes, and Beauty Queens, examines the writing and rhetoric of black Jamaican and African American women who regard themselves as ladies or as persons who epitomize all that is traditionally feminine. More information on Professor Lindsay’s new book project can be found here.
Congratulations, Professor Lindsay!
