Join the USC Consortium for Gender, Sexuality, Race and Public Culture and the Department of Gender & Sexuality studies to welcome Moya Bailey, Associate Professor of Communication at Northwestern and our Spring Public-Scholar-in-Residence! As part of her residency, Professor Bailey will be giving a public talk entitled "Transforming Misogynoir": A Conversation with Moya Bailey.
Professor Bailey is the founder of the Digital Apothecary and co-founder of the Black Feminist Health Science Studies Collective. Her work focuses on marginalized groups’ use of digital media to promote social justice, and she is interested in how race, gender, and sexuality are represented in media and medicine. She is the digital alchemist for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network and the Board President of Allied Media Projects, a Detroit-based movement media organization that supports an ever-growing network of activists and organizers. She is a co-author of #HashtagActivism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice (MIT Press, 2020) and is the author of Misogynoir Transformed: Black Women’s Digital Resistance (New York University Press, 2021).
The Consortium for Gender, Sexuality, Race and Public Culture brings together faculty researchers from across USC, Southern California and beyond, to explore and contextualize shifts in representations of gender, race and sexuality in public culture, while translating that research to the public square.
