Professor VII (current rank) University of California at Santa Barbara
At UCSB my specialties are Women and International Development, Cultural Studies, Feminist Studies, anti-racist studies, and Critical Social Psychology. I have Affiliated Faculty status in Women’s Studies and the Global and International Studies Program (GISP), chair the minor in Women, Culture and (Third World) Development, and am a member of the GISP Executive Committee. From 2006-08 I was Vice Chair of the UCSB Academic Senate (having previously chaired the campus Planning and Budget Committee, and co-chaired the UCSB Design Review Committee and the Campus Planning Committee, in addition to a number of other committees of the Academic Senate). At present, I am a member of the UCSB Committee on International Education, as well as Chair of the system-wide University of California Committee on International Education. I am currently serving as Chair of the UCSB Academic Senate.
DISSERTATIONS SUPERVISED I supervise interdisciplinary dissertations in sociology, which frequently have formal connections with anthropology, history, and similar intellectual areas. Their reach has included work in Mexico, the Phillippines, the Dominican Republic, for example. I supervised Dr. Mechlinski’s doctorate (2007: he is presently at Lewis and Clark), for which he received Wenner-Gren support and which won the 2008 Lancaster Award, campus-wide award for “Best Doctorate in the Social Sciences”.
