Lunchbox Lecture with Dr. Richard Blissett

November 16 @ 12:20 pm - 1:10 pm

REGISTRATION REQUIRED – Sign up via the Honors Network

Join us for an Honors Lunchbox Lecture on Wednesday, November 16 with Dr. Richard Blissett, Assistant Professor of Educational Policy in the Department of Lifelong Education, Administration, and Policy in the Mary Frances Early College of Education. He will be presenting “Having Justice in Mind: The Social Psychology of Race-Conscious Education Politics.”

Dr. Blissett is the principal investigator of the Democracy and Equity in Education Politics research group (https://coe.uga.edu/research/labs/deep), and the principal coordinator for the Just Education Policy institute. Their research primarily focuses on attitudes and ideologies in the politics of educational equity and justice, as well as the spaces in which public ideologies translate into policy action. Work in this area has included research on democratic structures in education governance (particularly, school boards) as well as anti-racism activism and social movements in education.
