Please join your host, Zhe Levels Scott as she interviews Professor Jeanine Staples who is an Associate Professor of Literacy and Language, African American Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. She is a tenured professor whose research focuses on the analysis of narratives and how to move towards supreme love past deadly terrors. Professor Staples is the author of the book The Revelations of Asher Towards Supreme Love in Self. This is an endarkened, Feminist, New Literacies Event. It critically and creatively explores Black women’s terror in love. With poetry, prose, and analytic memos, Jeanine Staples shows how a group of Black women’s talk and writings about relationships revealed epistemological and ontological revelations, after 9/11. These revelations are presented in the context of a third wave new literacies framework. They are voiced and storied dynamically by the women’s seven fragmented selves. Prof Staples is also the recipient of a plethora of awards not limited to, but including: The Ralph C. Preston Award for Scholarship in Teaching and Literacy Research in the Service of Social Justice – The University of Pennsylvania (2005), The National Council of Teachers of English Early Career Educator of Color Leadership Award (2008), The Global Awareness in Teacher Education Award – University of Maryland College Park (2008), and Research Fellow for the Stanford Center on Adolescence (2008). Most recently, Dr. Staples was named a board member for the Africana Research Center at Penn State (2013) and a Fellow for the Social Science Research Institute/Children, Youth and Family Consortium (SSRI/CYFC) (2014).
