Dr. Pascha Bueno-Hansen
Dr. Pascha Bueno-Hansen, Associate Professor in the Department of Women & Gender Studies, received the 2020 University of Delaware Mid-Career Faculty Excellence in Scholarship Award. Dr. Bueno-Hansen's scholarship illuminates the struggles for human rights for women and people of non-normative genders and sexualities in Peru and across Latin America. Specifically, her work uses feminist decolonial methods and narrative to elucidate movements for justice. Since arriving at the University of Delaware, Dr. Bueno-Hansen has published numerous articles in peer reviewed journals, book chapters, and her book Feminist and Human Rights Struggles in Peru: Decolonizing Transitional Justice (University of Illinois Press, 2015, special series "Dissident Feminisms"), was published in Spanish this year by the Instituto de Estudios Peruanos: Derechos Feministas y Humanos en el Perú: Decolonizando la Justicia Transicional.
Founded in 2018 and given annually to highlight mid-career faculty whose scholarship is both prolific and impactful, the Mid-Career Faculty Excellence in Scholarship Award is one of the most prestigious awards given by the university. Dr. Bueno-Hansen's picture will hang in Morris Library through 2025, and a brick with her name will be placed in the University of Delaware Mentor's Circle.
Dr. Earl Smith and Dr. Angela J. Hattery, Women & Gender Studies Faculty and authors of the book Policing Black Bodies: How Black Lives are Surveilled and How to Work for Change, were the featured speakers on the webinar hosted by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL). The 90-minute webinar, the first of a two part series, focused on the history of race in the United States. Drs. Smith and Hattery argue that understanding the political construction of race, through the Virginia House of Commons law in 1662 that defined people of African descent as chattel, and the 3/5ths compromise in Article 1 of the Constitution, are the bedrock on which racism in the criminal justice system is built. More than 750 people attended the webinar, with Drs. Smith and Hattery responding to questions via moderator Robert Patillo.

Dr. Margaret Stetz, the Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women's Studies and Professor of Humanities at the University of Delaware, presented the virtual lecture "Whistler's Afterlives: J.M. Whistler's Lasting Cultural Legacy" in the September 9, 2020 Scholars in the Library Series:
Like his contemporary and "frenemy" Oscar Wilde, artist J.M. Whistler has left a lasting cultural legacy that haunts 20th- and 21st-century fiction, poetry and drama; has been the subject of recent documentary films, and turns up in such unlikely places as the world of the culinary arts in Whistler's Mother's Cook Book. Dr. Stetz surveys Whistler's varied representations and to consider what has made him such a dynamic and long-lasting presence in Western imagination. This lecture is in conjunction with the exhibition "Friends and Enemies: Whistler and His Artistic, Literary and Social Circles," which will be on view in the University of Delaware Morris Library during Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

Dr. Patricia Sloane-White, a social anthropologist who is Professor of Anthropology and a member of the Asian Studies and Islamic Studies Programs at UD, has researched Islam, capitalism, entrepreneurship, corporate business, and gender in Malaysia for over two decades and was a recipient of a Fulbright Research Fellowship to Malaysia in 2008-2009 and a Fulbright Specialist Scholar to Malaysia in 2014. Her latest book, Corporate Islam: Sharia and the Modern Workplace (Cambridge University Press), "offers a unique insight into the modern Islamic corporation, revealing how power, relationships, individual identities, gender roles, and practices - and often massive financial resources - are mobilized on behalf of Islam. Focusing on Muslims in Malaysia, Dr. Patricia Sloane-White argues that sharia principles in the region's Islamic economy produce a version of Islam that is increasingly conservative, financially and fiscally powerful, and committed to social control over Muslim and non-Muslim public and private lives."
