History in the making

History Professor Sasha Turner's research into childbearing during times of slavery informs contemporary conversations about women's experiences and autonomy, and earned her many awards for her ground-breaking work.

We are proud of the strong, passionate women who are key members of the university community.

Jennifer Gerarda Brown, dean of the School of Law, has and continues to lead our students, faculty, staff and alumni into a rapidly evolving industry. Throughout the past 25 years, Brown has helped our students think about the integration of their personal and professional values. For her tireless efforts, she was named among New Haven Biz’s 2019 Women Who Mean Business honorees.

Sasha Turner, professor of history, spent 10 years conducting research across the United States, Jamaica and England. Her book, “Contested Bodies: Pregnancy, Childrearing, and Slavery in Jamaica,” looks at how doctors stopped the Afro-Caribbean childbirth traditions and rituals of 18th-century enslaved women in Jamaica by imposing European methods to control both the women and the childbirth experience. The book has received multiple awards and, more importantly, helps inspire conversations about topics such as intersectional feminism, body autonomy and slavery.

Tricia Fabbri, our all-time winningest coach in women’s basketball history, personifies what it means to be a strong leader — on and off the court. Fabbri has led her team through 8 consecutive seasons with 20 or more wins, and multiple NCAA Tournaments. She was recognized as this year's MAAC Coach of the Year.
