October 3, 2019

Moya Bailey.

Moya Bailey is an Assistant Professor of Cultures, Societies, and Global Studies and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Northeastern University. Named to Essence Magazine’s Woke 100 Women for 2018, Professor Bailey coined the word “misogynoir” in 2010, a term that describes the intersection of race and gender-based bias that black women face in popular culture. Her work focuses on marginalized groups’ use of digital media to promote social justice as acts of self-affirmation and health promotion. She is interested in how race, gender, and sexuality are represented in media and medicine. She currently curates the #transformDH Tumblr initiative in Digital Humanities. She is also the digital alchemist for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network.
