Catherine Jones, MA Student

Posted: April 11, 2008
Catherine is from Long Beach, Mississippi and came to Austin in 2000. She earned her undergraduate degree in English from UT in 2004. She traveled the country, living in Chicago and L.A., before returning to UT in 2006 to earn her Master's in Women's and Gender Studies. Her goal in continuing her education is to become the best agent of social justice possible, and in approaching the end of this portion of her academic career she believes her pursuit of a Master's in WGS has served her well in reaching for this goal.

Her academic interests include: the historic and continuing marginalization of feminist of color texts in the WGS cannon and the colonizing effects of white U.S. women's activism across borders. Her Master's thesis explores the colonizing effects and discourses of white women's activism and how this activism is not only ineffectual but harmful to local efforts for gender equality in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Catherine will graduate in the summer of 2008
