Lana Dee Povitz awarded a SSHRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship at COHDS

 

We are thrilled to announce that Lana Dee Povitz, now completing her PhD at New York University, has been awarded a SSHRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship at COHDS. Lana’s new project, a historical excavation of the term activism, will use oral history to examine the “afterlives” of people who participated intensively in the women’s liberation and AIDS movements from the 1970s to the early 1990s. What did they understand themselves to be doing? How did involvement change their lives going forward?  The new project builds on her PhD thesis on food activism in New York City. Lana has published in the journals, Canadian Historical Review and Women and Social Movements, and has a chapter in the forthcoming anthology Women’s Activism and “Second Wave” Feminism: Transnational Histories (Bloomsbury, 2016).  She is engaged in an array of contemporary social struggles, including those for peace, prison abolition, and queer feminism. Welcome Lana!! We are very much looking forward to working with you over the next two years (starting in September).
