Professor Mab Segrest, Martha Daniel Newell Scholar in Residence Spring Semester 2015

Professor Segrest was Fuller-Maathai Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at Connecticut College from 2002-2014. She has published articles on Central State Hospital’s history and is working on a book-length study.  In 2004 Segrest was a Mellon Distinguished Professor at the Center for Research on Women/Tulane, and in 2009-2010, a Fellow at the James Weldon Johnson Institute for Civil Rights at Emory.  Her 1994 book "Memoir of a Race Traitor" was named Editor's Choice/Lambda Literary Awards, Outstanding Book on Human Rights in North America by the Gustavus Myers Center on Human Rights and nominee for Non-Fiction Book of the Year by the Southern Regional Council. Her work on Georgia’s state mental hospital is the culmination of three decades of political and intellectual work on the nexus of identity, culture and power in the U.S. South.  Segrest explained, “I am thrilled to be able to bring my work back to Milledgeville and to teach and learn with GC students, professors and Milledgeville residents on this institution that has been so central to the city’s history. I think this course will be amazing!”
