Please join GOLD for a Diversi-tea with Dr. Ebony Elizabeth Thomas from the Graduate School of Education. Dr. Thomas’s program of research includes a focus on children’s and adolescent texts (broadly construed), the teaching of African American literature, history, and culture in K-12 classrooms, and the roles that race, class, and gender play in classroom discourse and interaction. She is also conducting empirical, digital, and archival research for two monographs: a critical volume about the ways that children and teens of color are represented in early 21st century speculative fiction, comics, and multimedia, and a pedagogical volume about how to wrestle with traumatic historical events such as slavery in the teaching of literature.
As always, Diversi-teas are an opportunity to relax, listen, ask questions, share your own ideas all while drinking tea in good company. We provide tea and cookies, come with your interests and ideas. You are welcome to bring your lunch.
