A founding member and former Director of the Women's Studies Department, she also teaches regularly in the Black Studies Program and the American Studies Program.

She is widely published, and her co-authored book, Women Making Art: Women in the Visual, Literary, and Performing Arts Since 1960 (with Dr. Wendy Oliver, Peter Lang, Inc., 2001) remains a standard source in the field of interdisciplinary feminist cultural studies.
