Antoinette M. Landor, will serve as the Millsap Professorship of Diversity and Multicultural Studies in the Department of Human Development and Family Science, for the 2020-2021 academic year. Landor has a nationally recognized research program that is breaking new ground and pushing the field to think more complexly about how colorism and racism shapes individual, relational, and family health and functioning. Her research is also defining an entirely new field focused on the ways in which skin tone, sexuality, and relationships intersect within communities of color. Landor’s scholarly writing embodies HDFS diversity research that is cutting edge and innovative, and on a subject that is timely and relevant for a multicultural, multi-racial society.
