Thursday, March 16, 2017 Larycia A. Hawkins

 Larycia Hawkins

Larycia A. Hawkins, Visiting Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia where she is part of the Race, Faith, and Culture Project and the Pluralism Project. Hawkins’ active research agenda includes a book on the politics of black Catholic parishes in Chicago. Her writing, speaking, teaching, and scholarship are squarely animated by a conviction that political science should be relevant to the real world. Dr. Hawkins insists that we transcend theoretical solidarity with the oppressed and move to actual, embodied solidarity with the oppressed. Her belief in embodied solidarity led her to wear a hijab to call attention to the most visible targets of Islamophobia, Muslim women. She previously founded and directed the Peace and Conflict Studies program at Wheaton College, where she served for 8 years as Associate Professor of Political Science.
