Visiting Distinguished Professor: bell hooks
Dr. hooks has written 35 books and numerous articles on Black feminist scholarship, popular culture, race theory, sexuality studies, and gender studies. Her work is taught at universities around the world. When she visited our campus last autumn, students were awed and engaged by her direct, accessible style. One student described hooks’ visit to a Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies class as “the most remarkable experience of my undergraduate education.” hooks is known for reaching broad audiences—students, faculty, and the academic and non-academic community. Her residency is made possible by the College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, the Office of Minority Affairs, the Kirwan Institute, and the Women’s Place.
