    Biography

    Jill Ewing Flynn is an Associate Professor who teaches undergraduate methods courses and coordinates student teaching for the English Education Program at the University of Delaware. After graduating with a B.A. in English and History from Duke University, she taught middle and high school English in a variety of settings—public and private, urban and suburban schools—for nine years. She holds permanent secondary teaching certification in New York state. She earned a master's degree in Secondary English Education from Pace University (NY) and a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction: Literacy Education from the University of Minnesota. She has worked with teacher candidates for over a decade.

    Flynn's research and teaching interests center on critical multicultural education, primarily on how teachers can engage with students in productive discussions about race. A qualitative researcher, she has co-edited a volume on hidden and suppressed narratives of women's experiences in academia (published 2018). For the last three years, she has also engaged with two colleagues in a two-part research project examining (1) student response to equity-oriented teacher preparation curriculum and (2) self-reflection and peer feedback in developing and teaching pedagogy focused on racial literacy in undergraduate methods courses.

Feminism and Intersectionality in Academia: Women’s Narratives and Experiences in Higher EducationFlynn, JillShelton, Stephanie Anne, Groseland, Tanetha Jamaey (Eds.)Springer2018https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-3-319-90590-7#about<p>​This edited volume explores the diversities and complexities of women’s experiences in higher education. Its emphasis on personal narratives provides a forum for topics not typically found in in print, such as mental illness, marital difficulties, and gender identity. The intersectional narratives afford typically disenfranchised women opportunities to share experiences in ways that de-center standard academic writing, while simultaneously making these stories accessible to a range of readers, both inside and outside higher education.<br></p>jeflynn
