Biography


Tiana Wilson is working on women of color feminist movements from the 1960s to the present. She is a third year doctoral student with a portfolio in Women and Gender studies. Examining how black women fostered and operated in women of color spaces, Tiana's dissertation project traces the ideological roots and legacy of the Third World Women's Alliance. These activists connected their struggles in the United States with other women of color in African, Asian, and Latin American countries in order to advocate for the end of race, class, and gender oppression.

At UT, Tiana serves as a research fellow for the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy and is a graduate editor of the Undergraduate Journal of Black Business History. Tiana also regularly engages in public history by contributing to notevenpast.org. She is the 2019-2020 Graduate Research Assistant for the Institute for Historical Studies and coordinator of the New Work in Progress Series
