Women’s Studies faculty boosted by research support

Two assistant professors in Women’s Studies recently garnered external support for their research projects.

Dayo Faloyan Gore has accepted a fellowship as scholar-in-residence at the Schomburg Center for the Study of Black Culture in New York City, where she will work on her study of post-World War II, black women radicals in U.S. history, integrating the study of Cold War politics, U.S. feminism and African-American history.

Milliann Kang and C.N. Le, visiting assistant professor in Sociology, have received a grant from the Institute for Asian American Studies at UMass Boston to study “Second Generation Asian Pacific American Households in New England: Negotiating Work, Family, Community and Identity.”

Kang and Gore joined the faculty last fall.
