Intersectional Qualitative Research: Centering Race and Gender to Conduct Humane and Ethical Research
Dr. Jennifer Esposito is a Full Professor and Department Chair of Educational Policy Studies at Georgia State University. Her research takes an intersectional approach to qualitative research, centering race and gender. As an interdisciplinary scholar, she sees critical theories as tools to interrogate social life and solve problems related to the material consequences of oppression and privilege. Her most recent co-authored book, Introduction to Intersectional Qualitative Research teaches novice researchers how to design and carry out studies from an intersectional perspective. Another co-authored book, Intersectional Analysis of Popular Culture Texts: Clarity in the Matrix applies an intersectional lens to analyze different popular culture forms. Dr. Esposito was trained as a qualitative methodologist over twenty years ago by the late Dr. Sari Biklen at Syracuse University. When she is not nerding out about methodology, she plays poker, reads fiction and poetry, and spends time with her daughters and spouse.
