Guest Lecture Series with Dr. Mignon Moore
Black, Sexual Minority Women and the Great Migration: The Search for Autonomy and Economic Freedom
Virtual Event - Register at: go.umd.edu/AFAM_Lecture-Mignon_RegFeb2022
The Department of African American Studies and Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Maryland welcome Dr. Mignon Moore for a special lecture event titled “Black, Sexual Minority Women and the Great Migration: The Search for Autonomy and Economic Freedom”, as part of the John B. Slaughter Endowment Lecture Series.
Dr. Moore has research and teaching interests in the sociology of family, race, gender, sexuality, qualitative methods, aging, and adolescence. Although her research spans various age cohorts, income ranges, social environments and methodological frameworks, it is united in its purpose to challenge those assumptions and paradigms drawn from the experiences of the dominant racial and socioeconomic group that cannot explain processes and outcomes for people who occupy a different structural position in society. She analyses race, gender, class and sexuality not just as identity statuses but structural locations that influence individual life chances and the ways individuals experience their social worlds.
