Behind the publication: Anwar Uhuru
This event is in the past.
Please join the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program for our next session of Behind the Publication, a behind-the-scenes workshop series on faculty research in gender and sexuality.
The series continues with Anwar Uhuru, Assistant Professor in the Department of African American Studies. Prof. Uhuru’s research interests span Black Existentialism, African American and Africana Philosophy, Atlantic Anglophone Literature, Africana Traditional Religions, Bio-Medical Ethics, Carceral Studies, Gender and Transgender Studies. They have published numerous articles, book chapters, and edited collections, with a book forthcoming entitled The Insurrectionist Case for Reparations: Race, Value and Ethics (SUNY Press). Prof. Uhuru’s presentation, "Femmephobia and Black Queer Malehood,” is drawn from their contribution to Femme Theory & Pop Culture: On the importance of centering femme in the analysis of pop culture.
About the series: The central goal this series is to offer graduate and undergraduate students a series of informal workshops where faculty encourage and demystify research by sharing their own experiences. We invite WSU faculty members to share a little about the genesis of their current or recent research. We ask them to discuss the joys and frustrations of the project; to elaborate on the decisions around the scope the work; to assess methodological questions; to discuss writing practices; to highlight the importance of colleagues, librarians, friends, and other interlocutors more generally for their work; and to offer tips and strategies to help students through their own projects.
