History

Duke University, 2014

 

During her fellowship year at the George and Ann Richards Civil War Era Center and the ARC, Dr. Greenlee completed additional research on her manuscript, “Dangerous Childhood: Black Girls, the Law and the Rise of Segregation in South Carolina, 1880-1920,” and she will complete her manuscript by June. Dr. Greenlee currently has two journal articles under review and two in progress. She published several popular media articles about racial violence or reproductive history at American Prospect and RH Reality Check, including a piece about similarities between the cases of Emmett Till and Tamir Rice. She presented on a panel about gender and the carceral state at the National Women’s Studies Association annual conference in Puerto Rico, and she also helped organize a panel of physicians, historians and activists at the National Abortion Federation. In addition to those meetings, she presented preliminary findings from a future research project in a public webinar about African-American history and reproductive health care. In May, she will be one of a few emerging scholars invited to present new work before the Little Berks convening of women’s historians in Massachusetts. While on campus at Penn State, she participated in an African-American Studies forum about events in Ferguson, Missouri, and also discussed reproductive rights and justice with women’s studies students. Greenlee was also named to the board of the Institute of Southern Studies and to the William Holmes Award Committee of the Southern Historical Association. Dr. Greenlee is currently the Senior Editor at Rewire, a nonprofit daily online publication (https://rewire.news/author/cynthia-greenlee-donnell/).
