Congratulations to Maureen Flint, a Doctoral Student in Educational Research, who recently successfully defended her dissertation! The title of her dissertation was "Methodological Orientations: College Student Navigations of Race and Place in Higher Education" and her work explored how students make sense of race through their interactions with place and space on the campus of The University of Alabama. Flint's work drew upon critical materialism and critical spatial theory, both of which inspired her methodology that used walking interviews and focus groups with UA students. Additionally, she created audio portraits and incorporated other artful elements to conceptualize this important research study. Below are some of the visual artworks that were displayed in a pre-dissertation art exhibit in the Ferguson Center.
After graduating in May, Dr. Flint will continue her innovative methodological work at The University of Georgia where she has accepted a tenure track position in Qualitative Research.
