Tuten, Kassandra

Kassandra Tuten.png
Kassandra Tuten graduated from Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) in 2014 with a BA in History, minor in Sociology and a certificate in Women's Studies. She was accepted into a MA program at Georgia State University with an emphasis in gender and sexuality histories of the Ottoman Empire, but deferred her studies to pursue a Student Conservation Association and AmeriCorps internship with the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site's Interpretation Department in Plains, Georgia. She has also served as an intern for Andersonville National Historic Site, a Civil War POW camp in rural Southwest GA. Currently, Kassandra works on the GSW campus at the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving where she serves as the Special Projects Coordinator. Historically speaking, her interests lie in exploring global histories of gender and sexuality. She is particularly interested in female involvement in local SNCC activities in the areas of rural SW GA where she grew up and has spent her entire life. She looks forward to continuing her education at the graduate level and becoming more actively engaged in local Civil Rights Remembrance Projects.
