Doctor of Philosophy in Education: Cultural Studies and Literacies
In my career, I will promote academic thriving and graduation equity for all undergraduate students through administrative leadership, teaching, research, and writing focused on intersections of race, gender, class, power, identity, agency, and institutional responsibility.
I am concerned with one of the ultimate problems of humankind – the liberation of humanity. Ignoring students’ cultural assets and knowledge in the classroom and taking students as “objects” rather than conscious beings are a process of dehumanizing students. Not limited to the education of international students, social injustice will always exist in education and other aspects of society if educators and students don’t pursue the ultimate goal of humanization in the teaching and learning process. An ideal education should also be an approach to humanization.
