SALLY SAYLES-HANNON
Doctoral candidate at Syracuse University, Cultural Foundation of Education “Diversity in Education and Women Studies”

MARCH 15, 2017

AUBURN / 11 AM / NUCOR CONFERENCE ROOM

Sally Sayles-Hannon is a Ph.D. Candidate in Cultural Foundations of Education and former McNair Fellow at Syracuse University. She holds an M.A. in Women’s Studies from Texas Woman’s University and a B.S. in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in feminist pedagogies from Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

As a diversity educator and active community organizer/advocate in Central New York, Sayles-Hannon has a unique and critical interest in exploring issues of social inequality and education. She has been a lecturer/instructor at four U.S. universities and colleges. Most recently, she held a lecturer position at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY in Social and Psychological Foundations of Education.

Her recent research emphasizes the need to be critical of how civility functions in diversity classrooms; that is, to be aware of how our everyday “niceness” can, if we are not vigilant, reinforce and replicate the inequality we want to dismantle. She has shared her ideas and research at conferences and publications nationally and internationally. Notably, she was one of five invited critics for an author-meets-critics symposium of Meira Levinson’s important book, No Citizen Left Behind, which was later published in Studies in Philosophy and Education.
