Porcher and Hughes named 2022 UDARI Faculty Summer ScholarsPorcher and Hughes named 2022 UDARI Faculty Summer Scholars4/29/2022 4:00:00 AM<p><strong>Kisha Porcher</strong>, assistant professor of English, and <strong>Cresean Hughes</strong>, assistant professor of sociology and social justice, have been named by the UD Anti-Racism Initiative (UDARI) as the 2022 UDARI Faculty Summer Scholars. Porcher’s qualitative research study will address the ways centering Blackness in English education in theory (Black theorists and ways of knowing) and practice (teaching and best practices from the Black community) disrupt anti-Blackness in English education programs. Hughes’s project explores whether an underexplored measure of criminal justice punitiveness -- capital punishment -- might be associated with disparities in school discipline for Black and brown students, and asks if such a relationship exists, under what circumstances it would arise and for whom the relationship would be most salient.​</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#99d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a;L0|#099d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a|Awards and Honors;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://www.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=174
