Lecture – 'Unpacking the Space That Race Makes: A Spatial Analysis of Racism in Schools'
This lecture is part of the University of Arizona School of Geography and Development's colloquium series.
Speaker: DeMarcus Jenkins, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Educational Policy Studies and Practice, University of Arizona
About the speaker: Jenkins' scholarly research interests draw from his previous experiences as an urban school educator and state-level policy analyst. Jenkins' research is focused on the relationship between urban spatial transformation, particularly of neighborhoods and cities, and school reform. Broadly conceived, his research interrogates the dynamic power structures that organize contemporary geographies of education and educational arrangements, including racism, sexism, and racialized capitalism.
