Susanna Wing Awarded U.S. Speaker and Specialist Grant
Associate Professor of Political Science Susanna Wing has been awarded a U.S. Speaker and Specialist Grant by the State Department. This grant—which is given to American experts in a given field to present lectures, serve as consultants or conduct workshops and seminars for professional overseas audiences—will allow Wing to travel to Mali in September to lecture on the role of women in politics. A researcher in comparative politics, development, womens' rights, and law in Africa, Wing will speak to female parliamentarians, government ministers and representatives from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) while in Mali. She will also be interviewed on Malian radio and television.
