    Guest hosts:

    Jalia L. Joseph is a graduate student in the Department of Sociology at Texas A&M University, additionally obtaining a graduate certificate in Africana Studies with specializations in race/ethnicity, social movements, feminisms, and critical race theory. Their current research address how social movement literature obscures race in the contextualization of race-based social movements. Through this work, Jalia demonstrates how & why the study of social movements must integrate structural theories of race and racism to advance the “development of methodological and theoretical tools that should be available to students of social movements on the whole” (Bell 2016:2). Their research appears in a co-authored paper in Women’s Studies in Communication, a co-authored chapter in Black Feminist Sociology: Perspectives and Praxis (forthcoming), and a solo-authored debate article in Ethnic and Racial Studies (forthcoming).
