Dr. Petra A. Robinson accepts invitation to serve on panel at AERA Writing Event


Dr. Petra A. Robinson, Assistant Professor in the School of Leadership & Human Resource Development (SLHRD), accepted an invitation to serve on a special panel at an American Educational Research Association (AERA) writing event for graduate students of the Special Interest Group Critical Examination of Race, Ethnicity, Class and Gender in Education.

Given Dr. Robinson's research interests and publication history, she was invited to serve on the panel Publish, Don't Perish: A Panel & Roundtables on Writing in the Academy.

The purpose of this special interest group is to promote 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.

Special Interest Groups provide a forum within AERA for the involvement of individuals drawn together by a common interest in a field of study, teaching, or research when the existing divisional structure may not directly facilitate such activity.

The theme of AERA’s 2016 event is Public Scholarship to educate diverse democracies. It will be held in Washington, D.C. in April.

SLHRD is honored that Dr. Robinson is invited to share the impact of her work nationally and internationally, further expanding the impact faculty members have on areas of human resource and organization development.
