Race, Gender, Urban Education, Qualitative Methods
My primary research interests are race, gender and urban education. More specifically, I am interested in examining processes of racialization, gendering, and social mobility in relation to the social marginalization and criminalization of youth in urban educational settings. My current research investigates the #SayHerName movement and its media coverage in order to examine the discursive construction of black femininity in relation to notions of visibility, civility, and the intersection of racism and patriarchy.
