Event extras: 

Mitchell trained in critical theory, black radical thought and feminist theory at University of California, Santa Cruz, where she received a Ph.D. in history of consciousness with an emphasis in feminist studies and served as a founding coordinator of the Black Cultural Studies Research Cluster and the Critical Race and Ethnic Studies Graduate Collective. Her forthcoming book is tentatively titled Disciplinary Matters: Black Studies, Women’s Studies and the Neoliberal University, which places the institutional projects of black studies and women's studies not at the margins but the heart of the consolidation of the post-Civil Rights U.S. university.
