Katherine McKittrick, Associate Professor of Gender Studies, has been named to the Royal Society of Canada’s (RSC) College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists program. This award recognizes research leaders who, at an early stage in their career, have demonstrated a high level of achievement.
Dr. McKittrick’s scholarly work looks at the links between the theories of race, liberation and creative texts in relation to the fields of geography, cultural studies, black studies and gender studies where her work on interdisciplinary and anti-colonial intellectual thought is widely recognized.
“I’m still very early in my career so this award is a deep honour,” says Dr. McKittrick. “To have a scholar who works on questions of black liberation recognized by the RSC is very exciting.”
