Carla Janell Pattin Appointed Assistant Editor of the Journal of Colorism Studies

 

Join the Editorial Team of the Journal of Colorism Studies (JOCS) in welcoming Carla Janell Pattin as the Assistant Editor. Mrs. Pattin has served as a member of the Editorial Review Board and contributor to JOCS.

Mrs. Pattin earned a Master of Arts in sociology with a concentration in critical race theory and intersectionality in 2010, and a Bachelor of Arts in Africana Studies from the University of Toledo in 2007. Currently, she is a doctoral candidate in Theory and Social Foundations in the Department of Educational Foundations and Leadership in the Judith Herb College of Education at the University of Toledo.

Experiences in academia include teaching as an adjunct instructor at Owens Community College for eight years where she taught Introduction to Sociology, Medical Sociology and Black Feminist Thought. She has taught in three academic programs at the University of Toledo: Africana Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Sociology and Anthropology. In the fall of 2017, Mrs. Pattin will be teaching Introduction to African American History and Culture at Ohio State-Lima.

Mrs. Pattin’s research interests are in the area of liberatory pedagogy as exemplified by black feminist theory. In addition, her dissertation research will examine the narratives of African American female college students’ classroom experiences, given the current U.S. sociopolitical climate.

Mrs. Pattin’s interest in thought-provoking social issues is deeply aligned with the journal’s mission and I look forward to her contributions and continued success of JOCS.
