KEYNOTE - Critical Reimaginings of STEAM+ for a Brighter Day - Dr. ReAnna Roby
From Blair Banks on April 19th, 2021
Mississippi native, Dr. ReAnna S. Roby, is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College in the Department of Teaching and Learning. She is a graduate of Alcorn State University, Washington State University, and the University of Texas of San Antonio. Currently, she works with the NSF funded Fisk-Vanderbilt Bridge Program Regional Center of Excellence in Broadening Participation.
As a first-generation scholar, Roby's background as a Black Southern woman in science greatly informs her service, research, and teaching – praxis. Roby's scholarship employs Critical Race Feminism, Curriculum Theory, and Critical Qualitative methodologies to explore the ways in which the narratives of Black women and girls in science (formally and informally) could be used to reconceptualize science, science education, and policy people.
