Dr. Bettina Love
Dr. Bettina Love, an associate professor in the department of educational theory and practice at the University of Georgia, will speak from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in Shattuck Auditorium.

Drawing on personal stories, research and historical events, Dr. Love will discuss a vision of educational justice inspired by the rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists, based on her book “We Want to do More Than Survive.”

Her research, teaching and service focus on understanding, contextualizing, and deconstructing the formal and informal educational experiences of marginalized youth. Her work is informed by critical pedagogy, critical race theory and black feminism with an aim to create innovative pedagogical practices through the use of non-traditional educational curricula (e.g., hip hop-based education, critical media literacy, hip hop feminism and popular culture).
