Dr. Jamila Lyiscott is a social justice education scholar, spoken word artist and educational consultant. She was recently appointed as an assistant professor of social justice education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a senior research fellow of Teachers College, Columbia University’s Institute for Urban and Minority Education. She is also the founder and co-director of the Cyphers for Justice youth, research and advocacy program, apprenticing New York City high school youth, incarcerated youth and educators as critical social researchers through hip-hop, spoken word and digital literacy. This talk will draw on Dr. Lyiscott’s ongoing research, personal experiences navigating multiple varieties of English and her work engaging arts and activism, problematizing traditional notions of what it means to be “literate” in our society.
