About the Speaker

Dwanna L. McKay (formerly Robertson) is a citizen of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and joined the Race, Ethnicity, and Migration Studies program in 2016. Professor McKay centers her teaching, research, service, and activism on an overall commitment to social justice. Raised within the boundaries of her tribal nation in Oklahoma, McKay understands the definitive disadvantage of growing up in a rural area steeped in discrimination and how that manifests in constrained access to basic needs like housing, healthcare, employment opportunities, and equitable education. McKay fuses active research and teaching agendas in social inequality, intersectionality, critical race theory, and indigenous identity with broad interdisciplinary knowledge.
