Katie is a feminist historian and interdisciplinary scholar whose research examines the intersections of gender, race, popular culture consumption, sex, and class. Her dissertation work considered the ways in which white U.S. artists and activists from the 1940s through the 1970s appropriated imagined black masculinities into their work. Her current project examines the ways in feminism and feminists have been represented in U.S. popular culture since the 1930s. Katie is an advocate of feminist activism in educational communities inside and outside of the university and works closely with high schools to introduce feminist learning.
