Kimberly B. George is a feminist scholar, writer, consultant, and entrepreneur of alternative education. She’s worked with professionals in many realms of leadership—from medicine to psychodynamic therapy to journalism—to teach the tools of a feminist and intersectional analysis of power and justice.
Her classes, lectures, and workshops analyze the injustices perpetuated by historical systems of violence, and seek to cultivate courageous imagination for altering those systems. Her teaching methods are most indebted to women-of-color feminist traditions— diverse and brilliant intellectual and creative knowledges that have lead the way in theorizing gender as interconnected to race, class, sexuality, and western colonialism and capitalism.
Kimberly’s writing has appeared in such publications at The Feminist Wire, NewBlackMan (in Exile),The New Haven Register, The Washington Spectator, Feministing.com, and The OpEd Project’s ByLine Blog. She’s currently working on two book length projects: a scholarly co-edited anthology of essays on cultural studies and the NFL (with David Leonard and Wade Davis); and a creative project on what it means to shift our structures of knowledge.
She holds an MA from Yale University, where she was a Merit Scholar from 2009-2011. Prior to Yale, she trained in English and counseling psychology. Currently, she’s a PhD student researching the intersections of critical social theory (focusing on Black feminisms) and psychoanalysis (focusing on relational psychoanalysis).
When she’s not writing or studying or teaching, she’s enjoying her yoga practice, hosting lingering brunches, collecting vintage dresses for a online boutique in process, watching her beloved Seattle Seahawks (yep—loving football is complicated as a feminist!), and otherwise savoring the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
