dissertation on the black British arts movement of the 1970s and 80s.
Some of you may have met her already, as she was a guest professor for
Professors Mathews and Cara in last spring’s London program. She is
visiting Oberlin as a candidate for a Dissertation Fellowship from the
Consortium for Faculty Diversity in Liberal Arts Colleges; if she
receives it, she will be here next year, writing her dissertation and
teaching one course in the fall. At noon on Monday she will give a
