Professor named to research center's 'Scholars of Color' list
The oldest university-based LGBTQ research center in the country has named a College of Education faculty member to its annual Scholars of Color list.
Anneliese Singh, an associate professor in the department of counseling and human development services, is one of 25 faculty and researchers named to the Center for LGBTQ Studies' Scholars of Color list. The list also marks the center's 25th anniversary; it was founded in 1991 at the City University of New York as CLAGS.
Singh, a co-founder of the Georgia Safe Schools Coalition and Trans Resilience Project, focuses her research on the resilience of transgender people, survivors of trauma, and social justice and empowerment training. She is leading the Atlanta-based team of a five-year, $2.9 million National Institutes of Health study investigating transgender identity and resilience.
Singh and the other Scholars of Color honorees will be recognized this March during a conference and "family reunion" celebration at the City University of New York.
CLAGS, or the Center for LGBTQ Studies, is dedicated to the study of historical, cultural and political issues of concern to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals and communities. Through public programs and conferences, CLAGS serves as a national center for the promotion of scholarship that fosters social change.
