Brown Bag Lunch presentation by Sherick Hughes (Ph.D. ’03)

Feb. 26, 2010

Sherick Hughes is an assistant professor of minority and urban education at the University of Maryland. He received his Ph.D. in Education; Culture, Curriculum and Change from the School of Education in 2003. 

On Friday, Feb. 26, he will return to his alma mater to discuss his current and past research, and the processes that led him through his research trajectory. He is currently pursuing four interrelated streams of research: (1) critical examination of race, class and gender; (2) applied research methods; (3) applied critical theory; and (4) diversity education/response bias. In collaboration with a colleague at NIH, he is working on a project that emphasizes all four streams. Dr. Hughes will discuss his research agenda, specifically focusing on the NIH mixed-methods study and the pilot data related to it.

Dr. Hughes is the author of numerous publications, including Black Hands in the Biscuits Not in the Classrooms: Unveiling Hope in a Struggle for Brown’s Promise (2005) and What We Still Don’t Know About Race: How to Talk About It in the Classroom (2006). 

Students and faculty are invited to hear the presentation and engage in conversation. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Anyone who wishes to bring a brown bag lunch is welcome to do so.

The presentation is sponsored by the Graduate Student Association.
