---, Fulbright Scholars Award. Professor Buckridge is the recent
recipient of a Fulbright Scholars Award for the country of Namibia.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship international educational
exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government and is designed to
forge lasting connections between the people of the United States and
the people of other countries, counter misunderstandings, and help
people and nations work together toward common goals. During his
Fulbright tenure, Professor Buckridge will be teaching at the
University of Namibia and conducting archival research and interviews
for his next book, Dress and Trauma: Herero Women and the
Aftermath of Genocide in German Southwest Africa,
1900s-2000. His study examines the relation between the
traumatized black body and dress practices among the Herero women in
Namibia and how clothing was used as symbolic materiality and the
process of meaning making within the social, economic and political
context of society past and present. His work will highlight new
arguments and interpretations of women’s role in colonized society.
Professor Buckridge will begin his yearlong program in January 2022.
