Anita Bright, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the Graduate School of Education. Dr. Bright’s primary research interests focus on racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression, and draw from critical theory and include explorations into the ways curricular materials may function as reproducers of culture, and the ways marginalization and oppression may influence students, their families, and the climate of educational settings. Her research also includes a focus on the ways law enforcement intersects with public school education, and the ways preservice teachers conceptualize ideas of social justice, and explores the ways they use discourse to explain, defend, and justify their thinking.
