Philosophy professor presents at Educational Justice conference
How students see themselves can directly impact their academic success. Your self-esteem and confidence are influenced by your own self-image or what Assistant Philosophy Professor Pamela Lomelino calls “imaging-as.” Lomelino discussed how this concept can empower under-represented college students when she presented her research at the Educational Justice Conference at the Bethune-Cookman University on July 17-19, 2016. Her presentation highlighted how “imaging-as” can be an empowerment tool to increase retention rates in this population. Lomelino’s presentation also touched constraints to “imaging-as” such as issues of social justice issues—like access to quality education and healthcare. Go here for more details on the conference.
