Lisa Buchanan, associate professor in the Department of Education and Wellness in the Dr. Jo Watts Williams School of Education, has published an article in the peer-reviewed journal Social Studies Research and Practice with colleagues Cara Ward, Donyell Roseboro and Denise Ousley, faculty in the Watson College of Education at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
The article, “An interdisciplinary study of racial violence through place in grades 3–12,” is the most recent work from the team, who has collaborated on a number of professional publications and presentations about the role of place when examining racial violence with students in the classroom, including their collective teaching and research on the Wilmington Race Massacre of 1898. The authors write, “This article is the first to explore the 1898 Massacre in Wilmington, North Carolina from an interdisciplinary practice and cross-grades lens. It offers multiple step-by-step approaches for classroom teachers and teacher educators to enact interdisciplinary work with both 1898 and other acts of racial violence in their own places and across the United States.”
