Associate Professor Treva Lindsey of the department of women's, gender and sexuality studies specializes in African American women's history, black popular and expressive culture, black feminism(s), hip hop studies, critical race and gender theory, and sexual politics. She researched black women's beauty culture by delving into newspapers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries for ads to learn how products were advertised, who advertised them, and who were the models, among other questions.
