The Evolving Definitions of Femicide: Cristina Alcalde

Earlier this year, the Catholic University of Peru selected Associate Professor Cristina Alcalde of the Department of Gender & Women's Studies to be one of six international visiting professors and scholars.
 
Alcalde spent her time at the university teaching a graduate seminar on femicide and violence against women. This opportunity to travel and teach abroad allowed Alcalde to investigate new areas of research and explore international experiences separate from those in America. 
 
In this podcast, Alcalde discusses her trip, issues and research around femicide, and how American understandings of femicide contrast with those internationally.

New Faculty 2013: Meet Chamara Jewel Kwakye

The African American and Africana Studies Program and the Department of Gender and Women's Studies are excited to welcome Chamara Jewel Kwakye to their faculty!
 
Kwakye's work at the University of Kentucky will revolve around the examination of the life experiences of black women and girls particularly focusing on their educational experiences. Like many who come to UK and join departments within the College of Arts & Sciences, Kwakye was drawn by the interdisciplinary approach that the school fosters. Another draw was the college's commitment to digital studies which Kwakye hopes to capitalize on with her new research project focusing on how young black women use performance and social media to express their lives.  
 
This podcast is part of a series highlighting the new faculty members who joined the College of Arts and Sciences in the fall 2013 semester.
