Education Studies students presented a paper investigating racial comedy in college teaching at the University of Pennsylvania’s Ethnography in Education Research Forum in Philadelphia last month. Stephanie Graziano (’17 Speech Language Pathology & Audiology), Alec J. Tucker (’17 History, Theater), Kevin Guevara (’17 English) and Dr. Ellie Fitts Fulmer (Education) presented their work, titled “Laughing at the Truth: Investigating Racial Comedy in Anti-Racist Teacher Education” as part of a data analysis workshop alongside advanced doctoral students and early career faculty members.
