SLHRD Professor, Robinson, Serves as Panelist at National Graduate Student Workshop


Dr. Petra A. Robinson, an assistant professor in the School of Human Resource & Workforce Development (SLHRD), served as a panelist at the Graduate Student Workshop for the American Educational Research Association (AERA), one of the largest worldwide organizations affiliated with the College of Human Sciences & Education (CHSE).

Robinson was selected to serve as a panelist at the “Writing for Your Life: Building a Writing Life to Successfully Publish in the Academy” graduate student event in April 2016 at this year’s AERA conference in Washington DC.

Robinson received a special invitation to participate in the special session based on her research interests and notably for her recently co-edited book, Black faculty in the Academy: Narratives for Negotiating Identity and Achieving Career Success. After an hour-long panel discussion, panelists made individual presentations and fielded questions from a group of graduate students and early career faculty.

As a member of the special interest group Critical Examination of Race, Ethnicity, Class, and Gender in Education, Robinson discussed the integrated study of race, ethnicity, social class, and gender as lenses for performing critical analyses and evaluations of prevailing theory and practice in education.
