James Earl Davis, Ph.D. focuses his research on gender and schooling outcomes; men, boys and masculinity; sociology of higher education; and applied research methods. He is particularly interested in issues of access and equity in the educational pipeline as they are informed by gender, race, class, and the intersection of these social locations. Davis’ research agenda has been driven by reoccurring questions related to what we know about the social context of identity and how institutions (e.g., schools, college and universities, families, and communities) and policy (e.g., education reform, gender-based instruction and schools) are implicated in academic and social outcomes. During his career, he has had the opportunity to work with inspiring colleagues and graduate students who continue to refine his work and its impact. Currently, Davis is funding from the National Science Foundation for the project, stemming the tide: exploring factors related to males of color interest, engagement and achievement in mathematics and science. This project will facilitate the dissemination of the most recent research about identity and its relationship to science and mathematics achievement for boys and young men of color.
