Ozlem Sensoy & Robin DiAngelo's Is Everyone Really Equal - Fall 2018 Library DEI Committee Book Discussion

About Özlem Sensoy

Dr. Özlem Sensoy holds a Ph.D. in Multicultural Education from the Univ. of Washington, 2004. Throughout her long career, Dr. Sensoy's research focus has been on social justice education.  She explains that "Social justice education seeks to reveal how social inequities become embedded in the fabric of society, and to identify strategies for socially just change. My research examines the opportunities and barriers inherent in advancing a more equitable society, through social justice education. In doing so, I study a dual track: analyzing how inequities are reproduced in social institutions (such as schools, media, policing), and identifying constructive interventions to interrupt them (such as thinking critically about knowledge, pedagogical approaches, and political activism)."
