Gwendolyn Pough's Biography

Gwendolyn D. Pough is currently Associate Professor of Women’s Studies, Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University. Her research focuses on black feminist theory and the public sphere with an emphasis on Black public culture. She has published in several journals and anthologies. Her book, Check It While I Wreck It: Black Womanhood, Hip-Hop Culture, and the Public Sphere, examines the tenuous relationship between black women, hip-hop culture, and feminism. Her next book-length research project explores the connection between the historical legacy of struggles for literacy and social uplift left by19th century black women and contemporary African-American women’s book clubs and reading groups. She was awarded an American Association of University Women Post Doctoral fellowship in 2003-2004 to complete the research on this project. She writes fiction under the pseudonym Gwyneth Bolton and her first novels, I’m Gonna Make You Love Me, (Genesis Press) and If Only You Knew (Kimani Press, Harlequin Books) will be out in 2006.
