Description of Faculty Directors:
Liz Wilkinson Dr. Liz Wilkinson is a professor of American Literature at the University of St. Thomas, with a focus on Native American, Women’s, and Sports literatures. Her current book project is Women, Sport, and the Body: Claiming the Title. She began competing in both sports and writing at age four and she hasn’t stopped.
Gina Gavrilos Prof. Dina Gavrilos teaches courses in the Department of Communications & Journalism at the University of St. Thomas, including Media, Culture, Society and Race, Class, Gender.

This research stems from her background as a first-generation American, raised bi-culturally in Chicago and through months-long stays in Greece.
