Shannon Downey has been asked by Crain’s Chicago Business to be a regular blogger for them, reporting on Women’s Business Topics/Issues.

Patricia Monaghan took part in the protests in Wisconsin and reported on them (in both poetry and prose) in the online journal of Split This Rock, the activist poetry organization in Washington, D.C.

Beth Rubin recently wrote an article titled Online learning for older adults: Dealing with Internet visual literacy skills. It will be published in Avgerinou, M.D.,Search, P., Chandler S., & Valanides, N. (Eds.). Visual literacy in the 21st century: Trends, demands, and capacities.

Regina Spellers Sims was interviewed for a documentary on Black hair and body politics by University of Illinois graduate student Brittney Henton. In this film Brittney comments on her own hair journey and refers to Regina’s co-edited volume with Dr. Kimberly R. Moffitt entitled, Blackberries and Redbones: Critical Articulations of Black Hair/Body Politics in Africana Communities. Specifically, this documentary examines the hair practices of American American women and the pressures some face to look a certain way. The film includes commentary by students, consumers, and several noted scholars such as Neal Lester, Ph.D., Dean of Humanities at Arizona State University, who is also a contributor to our co-edited volume.
