Featured Interview: Dr. Channon Miller, Diversity Post-Doctoral Fellow

Interview by Nadia Nguyen, Sophomore, Communication Studies

I arrived here to University of San Diego and the Department of History as a Diversity Post-Doctoral Fellow by way of Boston University where I completed by PhD in American Studies in May of this year. I am teaching African American History this semester, African American Women’s History next semester. As these courses suggest, my scholarly interests and expertise revolve around the ways in which raced and gendered mechanisms of oppression have unfolded in black women’s lives, their negotiations of these forces, and their modes of grasping social justice.
