Biography

Dr. Melinda A. Mills earned a Ph.D. in Sociology (2008), and Master’s degrees in Anthropology (2010), Organizational Psychology (1997), Public Administration (2001), and Women’s Studies (2007). Her first book, The Borders of Race, examines the lived experiences of multiracial people of various racial combinations. Dr. Mills is currently completing two book manuscripts: 1) Invisible Mixture focuses on multiracial people in interracial relationships; and 2) Racial Mixture and Musical Mash-Ups in the Life and Art of Bruno Mars explores the potential currency of multiplicity, ambiguity and fluidity in racial identity. Both book projects examine race (in relationships and representations) from an intersectional feminist perspective.
