Women’s Studies Program plans talk on ‘Womanism
and Popular Culture’
Popular culture as viewed through a “womanist”
lens is the focus of a lecture scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday,
March 28 at Texas Woman’s University in Denton. The
event, which is free and open to the public, will take place
in room 203 of the Classroom Faculty Office (CFO) Building.
For more information, call (940) 898-2119.
The lecture, titled
“Postmodernism at Street Level: Womanism and Popular
Culture,” will be presented by Dr. Layli Phillips, associate
professor and graduate director of the Women’s Studies
Institute at Georgia State University. Dr. Phillips recently
published “The Womanist Reader,” the first volume
to anthologize the major works of womanist scholarship. This
interdisciplinary reader traces the history of a quarter century
of womanist thought.
Dr. Phillips teaches
courses and conducts research on womanism, Black feminism,
Black queer studies and women and hip hop. She also conducts
historical research on early Black psychologists Mamie P.
and Kenneth B. Clark, and writes on liberation psychology.
The lecture is
sponsored by the TWU Women’s Studies Program, which
offers the only master of arts degree in women’s studies
in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. For more information about
the program, call (940) 898-2119.
