2014 Women’s Caucus Events at ASA

Women’s Caucus Luncheon Lecture

The very inspiring 2014 Women’s Caucus Lecture was given by Mĩcere M. Gĩthae Mũgo, Meredith Professor for Teaching Excellence, and Professor of African American Studies at Syracuse University. She is a recipient of numerous awards, including the Distinguished Africanist Award from the New York African Studies Association for her contribution to scholarship. In November 2002, The East African Standard Century listed her among “The Top 100: They Influenced Kenya Most During the 20th Century”. She gave an illuminating, engaging and moving talk on Women Embracing Creativity and Utu as Tools to Combat Violence and Find Healing.
