Precious Cheray Robinson, 2019 APSA Minority Fellowship Program Recipient

Precious Cheray Robinson is a senior at Bryn Mawr College, where she is majoring in political science with a concentration in gender and sexuality studies. As a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow, she was involved in the University of Chicago’s Summer Research Training Program where she began her current project. Precious’ research focuses on Black feminist literature, which she maintains, is a topic that has been largely overlooked by the field of political theory. Through engaging Black feminists, she explores how Black political thought can be enriched by acknowledging and overcoming its patriarchal biases. She presented her work at the 2018 Association for Political Theory (APT) Conference as well as the 2017 Chicago Research Symposium. Precious is currently the head of the Bryn Mawr Student Curriculum Committee and aspires to become a professor once she finishes her PhD.
