Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is an Associate Professor of Physics and Core Faculty Member in Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of New Hampshire. Her first book, “The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, & Dreams Deferred”, published in 2021, has been called “a timely, necessary, stellar book — a game-changer.”
When Prescod-Weinstein presented Clark University’s annual Presidential Lecture recently in Tilton Hall, she made sure to let students know her path to success wasn’t always easy. “With struggle, I have made it to the other side,” she told her Clark audience, on Oct. 5.
Prescod-Weinstein sat down with a group of computer science and biology students, Dean of the College Betsy Huang, and Associate Provost and Dean of the Faculty Esther Jones, for a discussion on the intersection of theoretical physics and Black feminist science.
