About the Speaker

Moya Bailey

Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Northwestern University, Moya Bailey is a scholar of critical race, feminist, and disability studies. Her work focuses on marginalized groups’ use of digital media to promote social justice as acts of self-affirmation and health promotion. She is interested in how race, gender, and sexuality are represented in media and medicine, and she coined the term misogynoir which describes the unique anti-Black racist misogyny that Black women experience.

She currently curates the #transformDH Tumblr initiative in Digital Humanities, and she is the digital alchemist for the Octavia E. Butler Legacy Network. Bailey is a co-author of #HashtagActivism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice (MIT Press, 2020) and is the author of Misogynoir Transformed: Black Women’s Digital Resistance (New York University Press, 2021). She received her Ph.D. from Emory University.
