Broadly construed, his research explores how the construction of race, ethnicity, gender, and other identity-categories shape discordant ideologies and generate negative existential outcomes for members of minoritized populations or social groups. His recent professional and scholarly work is focused on the examination of pedagogies of power, privilege, and difference in a bid to cultivate critical and inclusive pedagogies and develop strategic, theoretical, and methodological interventions aimed at achieving both curricula and human transformation in learning environments.
