Honoring Dr. Drue Barker

In Memory of Dr. Drucilla K. "Drue" Barker, 1949-2023

The Department of Women's and Gender Studies mourns the passing of our colleague Dr. Drue Barker. She will be greatly missed. A thoughtful In Memoriam by Cindi Boiter Jolley is available on the Jasper Project website.

An obituary to Drue has been published here, with more information on a memorial to come.

As we mourn Drue, those who knew her are encouraged to share memories and photos on the Wordpress site set up by her colleagues in the Association for Economic and Social Analysis. A wonderful, in depth interview with Drue by Andrea L’Hommedieu can be listened to in the USC Digital Library Second Wave of the Women's Movement collection

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
