Lisa Johnson, Ph.D. Dr. Johnson has directed
the Center for Women's and Gender Studies at USC Upstate since July 2006. Over
the past eight years, she has developed programs on campus and in the community
to introduce the field of Women’s and Gender Studies as an exciting set of
critical thinking skills and fresh perspectives on gender and power in personal
relationships, politics, workplaces, educational settings and media culture.
Dr. Johnson is well
published in the field of feminist cultural studies, with specializations in
sexuality studies, disability studies and girls’ studies. Her scholarly work
has articulated landmark positions on the feminist
sex wars (Jane Sexes It Up), sex worker debates (Flesh
for Fantasy), the feminist gaze (Third Wave Feminism and Television), disabled feminist intellectual history (On the Literary Nonfiction of Nancy Mairs), feminist psychiatric disability studies (Girl in Need of a Tourniquet) and crip (disability studies) feminist epistemology (Cripistemologies). Many of these works are collaborative projects that reflect
Dr. Johnson’s commitment to convening and contributing to dynamic conversations
among feminist, queer and crip scholars.
