Diverse Magazine Honors African American Studies and Women’s Studies Professor

Stephanie Evans, an associate professor of African American studies and women’s studies at the University of Florida, has been chosen as one of 12 “Emerging Scholars” by Diverse magazine.

Diverse first published its “Emerging Scholars” edition in 2002 when the magazine was known as Black Issues in Higher Education. In its Jan. 7 edition, Diverse profiles 12 “under 40” scholars from around the country who are making their mark in the academy through teaching, research and service.

The magazine’s editors select honorees from a pool of candidates recommended by various scholars, department chairs, university public information officers, and others.

Each scholar is selected based on research, educational background, publishing record, teaching record, competitiveness of field of study, and uniqueness of field of study.

Evans is an associate professor jointly appointed between the African American Studies Program and the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research. Her research focuses on the intellectual and educational history of black women in the U.S. She is the author of Black Women in the Ivory Tower, 1850-1954: An Intellectual History, which looked at the struggle of black women to obtain access to higher education in America. Evans was named one of the top 10 reviewers of the American Educational Research Journal/Social and Institutional Analysis for 2007.

Other Diverse honorees include professors from Dartmouth College, the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Texas.
