Miller's 'Expanding the Rainbow' Released

Andrea Miller
 Andrea Miller

Andrea Miller, adjunct professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology in Webster's College of Arts & Sciences, has co-edited “Expanding the Rainbow: Exploring the Relationships of Bi+, Consensually Polyamorous, Kinky, Ace, Intersex, and Trans People.” 

The volume was released at this year’s American Sociological Association Conference held this month in New York.

Brandy Simula and J Sumerau are also co-authors on the book.


Kingston's 'Fully Human' Reviewed in Time Higher Ed

Lindsey Kingston
Lindsey Kingston

Lindsey Kingston’s book, “Fully Human: Personhood, Citizenship, and Rights” was reviewed as Book of the Week in Times Higher Education.

Find the review here (reg. required).

The book was published earlier this year by Oxford University Press. 

Kingston argues that citizenship within our current international system signifies being fully human, or being worthy of fundamental human rights. For some vulnerable groups, however, this form of political membership is limited or missing entirely, and they face human rights challenges despite a prevalence of international human rights law.

Kingston is an associate professor of international human rights in the Department of History, Politics, and International Relations in Webster's College of Arts & Sciences. She also directs Webster’s Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies.

Reed Reps Webster in ToughMudder

Margaret Reed 

Margaret Reed, director of the Colorado Springs metro campus, combined wellness and recruiting as she represented Webster University in the Tough Mudder CO 19 event.

Participating in the event connects her with others in the area whose interests or connections align with Webster’s academic programs.

“It was a great way to brand Webster, network and do a little recruiting in the process,” Reed said.
