some of us are brave
I have spoken in the U.S., Canada, and South Africa about a range of issues stemming from my research and public sociology: higher education, digital inequalities, race/class/gender, and media.
My latest is on NPR’s Marketplace, “How education changed because of welfare reform”. It was a great experience. Wonderful producers with sharp, deep analysis. It shows in the episode. The title is driving me a little crazy, though. 🙂 “How welfare reform changed education” might be better.
And, the VCU News Center was kind enough to talk to me about racism, police violence, and implicit racial violence.
That interview came after one I did with an Ohio NPR affiliate on a similar subject.
And, my new research project on how those in the informal economy think about credentialing informed my comments in a recent Washington Post article.
My forthcoming book, “Lower Ed” was named to Millions’ list of the “most anticipated non fiction books of 2016″.
I have also appeared on television and radio speaking most frequently about my work on for-profit higher education.
I have consulted with and lectured at traditional higher education institutions on issues of diversity and the political economy educational change.
