India S. Lenear
I am currently a doctoral student at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. My work broadly studies Women and politics, Black Politics, and American Politics. More specifically, my work focuses on Black Women’s studies, Body politics, and Black feminism(s). My research examines Black women’s political behavior, ideology, and participation through Black feminist theoretical lenses. I hold a BA in Political Science from North Carolina Central University.
