WGST’s own Professor Michele Berger has been featured in the Fall Issue of Women in Higher Education!

Professor Berger talks about her life in academia, her books and other publications, and the work that we still need to do.

“My work explores the real life meanings and everyday practices of health—mental, physical, emotional and sexual health—for African American mothers and daughters whose narratives comprise the book,” says Berger about Black Women’s Health, published in 2021. “While I want it to be a go-to text for anyone teaching or researching Black women’s and girls’ health, gender health disparities and mother-daughter relationships… I wanted it to be really accessible. I’m hoping it will reach beyond an academic audience.”
