Biographical Notes

Tosha is a recent graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BA in Women, Sexuality, and Gender Studies and a BA in English. With concentrations in African American Studies and Postcolonial Theory, her senior theses explored the racialized sexualities of incarcerated fat women on the show Orange is the New Black, and the post-material assembled identity of a decolonial subject in JM Coetzee’s Diary of a Bad Year. Her current research and activism focuses on the role of art and creation in incarcerated communities, prison abolition, and the pluralization of knowledges. She is interested in teaching at a collegiate level one day as well as continuing to work with those recovering from incarceration with the future goal of making “higher” education more accessible to inmates.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
