Tiffany M. Gill is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History and is also an affiliate with the Warfield Center for African and African American Studies and the Center for Women's and Gender Studies. She received her PhD in American History at Rutgers University in 2003 and her Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies from Georgetown University in 1996. Her first book, Beauty Shop Politics: African American Women’s Activism in the Beauty Industry is an analysis of the ways African American beauty entrepreneurs built and sustained a vibrant culture of activism and institution building. Supported in part by a grant from the American Association of University Women, Beauty Shop Politics will be published by the University of Illinois Press in early 2010. Currently, Professor Gill is at work on a second book manuscript examining the birth of an African American international tourist industry in the postwar era.
