Unapologetic Educational Research: Addressing Anti-Blackness, Racism and White Supremacy
Guest Ohio State Alum Dr. April L. Peters-Hawkins, University of Houston
The purpose of the series put on by The Ohio State University is to engage Ohio State alums and general audiences in thinking about and reflecting on what it means to conduct educational research from a standpoint that honors Black lives in the research process, while also disrupting racism and white supremacy. Given the unprecedented moment we are all experiencing in our lifetime we are committed to shifting the landscape of qualitative research and using this research to shift our sociopolitical context toward racial equity and justice. Each Ohio State alum will engage in a discussion with Dr. Lori Patton Davis, Professor and Department Chair of Educational Studies, and Dr. Penny A. Pasque, Professor and Director of QualLab. This effort also aligns with the college’s Racial Equity and Justice Initiative led by Dean Don Pope-Davis.
