March marks the celebration of Women’s History Month, a time to consider how the past has shaped the present. At Tulane on Thursday (March 14), distinguished labor economist, author and political commentator Julianne Malveaux will reflect on current affairs and the intersection of gender and race from an economic perspective with her talk, “Slipping through the Cracks: The Status of Black Females.”
"She is an extraordinary economist whose scholarly record, public contributions, and academic service are unmatched. Her voice is both prescient and uncompromising.”Launched in early 2012, the Anna Julia Cooper Project investigates how gender and race intersect to shape women’s politics in the South.
Initiatives of the project include student research opportunities, a postdoctoral program, seminars for faculty and students, and the annual Anna Julia Cooper Lecture.
Named in honor of one of the most noted African-American intellectuals in the nation's history, the AJC Project serves as a hub for academic and community-based research and engagement on the intersectional identities of race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation.
