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.
