Faculty spotlight

Affiliated Faculty member Dr. Anissa Wardi's book is now out in paperback! Water and African American Memory offers the first sustained treatise on watercourses in the African American expressive tradition. Her holistic approach especially highlights the ways that water acts not only as a metaphorical site of trauma, memory, and healing but also as a material site.

Dr. Britney Brinkman, an Affiliated Faculty member with the Women’s Institute, has published a new book, Detection and Prevention of Identity-Based Bullying, that looks closely at gender-based harassment as part of larger systems of power in U.S. and UK culture. She provides recommendations for best practices for teachers, administrators, and mental health professionals.

Affiliated faculty member Dr. Lou Martin's new book is out on October 15th! Smokestacks in the Hills: Rural-Industrial Workers in West Virginia (University of Illinois Press, Working Class in American History series, 2015) attends to gender in an analysis of rural, industrial working class culture.
