College of Education professor co-edits book about Obama era
Dr. Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, Assistant Professor in the College of Education, co-edited a new book with Dr. Shanesha R.F. Brooks-Tatum, Postdoctoral Research and Instructional Fellow at the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library. The book, titled Reading African American Experiences in the Obama Era: Theory, Advocacy, Activism, explores what it means to be Black in the Obama era.
In Reading African American Experiences in the Obama Era, young African American scholars and researchers and experienced community activists demonstrate how to encourage dialogue across curricula, disciplines, and communities with emphases on education, new media, and popular culture. Considering what this historic moment means for Black life, letters, and learning, this accessible yet scholarly volume encourages movement toward thoughtful analysis today.
Dr. Thomas researches, publishes and teaches courses in adolescent literacy and English Education. She is a 2011 WSU Humanities Center Faculty Fellow, and will be presenting her current project, "Multimodal "Post-Racial" Discourses of Slavery and Freedom in Marilyn Nelson's Fortune's Bones: The Manumission Requiem," at the Faculty Fellows Conference on Friday, April 6, 2012.
