Sherick A. Hughes University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA

Sherick Hughes, PhD, is a Full Professor in the School of Education at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill. In addition to numerous publications in professional journals, he is the co-author of Autoethnography: Process, Product and Possibility for Critical Social Research (2020 Book Award, national Society of Professors of Education), Black Hands in the Biscuits Not in the Classrooms: Unveiling hope in a struggle for Brown’s promise (2007 AESA Critics’ Choice Book Award, and co-author of The Evolving Significance of Race: Living, Learning, and Teaching  (2014 AESA Critics’ Choice Book Award). For more than 20 years, he has been investigating and addressing equity issues at the intersection of theory, policy, and practice. He has applied a variety of research methods that inform international dialogues on how inequitable social structures are developed, reproduced, and resisted; including the processes of learning and unlearning intergroup biases. He has taught courses in research methodology, equity, urban education, and intercultural education to both undergraduate and graduate students. He is recognized as one of the pre-eminent scholars of autoethnography methods, critical race studies and black education, and social context of schooling in urban and rural settings. Currently, he is a consultant and lecturer on trends in educational research, autoethnography, structural racism, and anti-racist education. His work was recognized by the American Educational Research Association (i.e., 2016 Distinguished Scholar Award; 2013 Division-G Early Career Award), and the Harvard Family Involvement Network of Educators. His work is used widely (for example, to inform an educational equity argument before the Supreme Court of North Carolina; and to inform popular culture Netflix series, “The Patriot Act” hosted by Hasan Minaj). He holds a doctorate in Education from UNC-Chapel Hill, a master’s degree in Communication Studies from Wake Forest University, a master’s degree in Public Administration from UNC at Chapel Hill, and a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from UNC at Wilmington.
