Keynote Address: bell hooks
Dr. bell hooks is a noted cultural critic, commentator, and feminist, is Distinguished Professor in Residence in Appalachian Studies at Berea College. Born Gloria Jean Watkins in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, she has chosen the lower case pen name bell hooks, based on the names of her mother and grandmother, to emphasize the importance of the substance of her writing as opposed to who she is. Prior to accepting the Distinguished Professorship at Berea College and returning to Kentucky, bell hooks has taught at Yale, Oberlin College, and City College of New York. Educated at UC- Santa Cruz, UW- Madison and Stanford, Dr. bell hooks is the author of over thirty books, many of which have focused on issues of social class, race, and gender. In 2013, she published the award-winning poetry collection Appalachian Elegy and the critical text,Writing Beyond Race. Most recently, hooks published "Dig Deep: A Response to Lean In" which appeared as a special feature for The Feminist Wire. She continues to cultivate intellectual community dialogues by hosting dynamic events through The bell hooks Institute.
