TWU Women’s Studies Program plans talk on ‘Womanism and Popular Culture’


DENTON — 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.
