Department of Communication Ph.D. students Megan Foster and Khari Johnson have been accepted to the highly competitive Black Feminist Theory Summer Institute within Duke University’s Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies.
The Black Feminist Theory Summer Institute will take place July 31-August 1, 2023 and is led by Jennifer Nash, professor of black feminist theory, intersectionality, and the intersection of race and law.
The five-day program accepts 20 students each summer, 10 from Duke University and 10 from other colleges and universities.
Per the institute’s website: “The institute will focus on interdisciplinary Black feminist scholarship that attends to the politics, practices, and pleasures of the ordinary. Graduate students will have the opportunity to engage closely with prominent scholars. Students will also be invited to share their scholarly work in short presentations. Our goal is to produce a cross-institution interdisciplinary community of scholars working in the field of Black feminist theory.”
