Congratulations to Maya Nitis on receiving a Gender and Racial Justice Scholars Research Award from JHU’s Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commemoration. For her project, “Decolonizing Knowledge in Pandemic Times,” mentored by Katrin Pahl, Maya will conduct research on anti-discrimination initiatives in local institutions of higher education. Her study aims to assess such initiatives through interviews with participants and to build a network of anti-discrimination resources for higher education. Through a transdisciplinary lens, the study will also yield a comparative assessment of intersectional, performative and critical epistemological frameworks that structure these initiatives. We wish her much success with this project and look forward to the presentation of her findings in March 2022!
