Tamara Beauboeuf is associate professor of women's studies. She offers courses in women and education, girls’ and women’s lifespan development, and feminist inquiry. Her published work has examined teachers’ negotiations of race and gender in their identities and pedagogy, and the embodiment of feminine standards of goodness. The latter is most recently investigated in her book, Behind the Mask of the Strong Black Woman: Voice and the Embodiment of a Costly Performance, Temple University Press, 2009.
