W414·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: The Future is Brown and Black: Re-imagining our Relationship with Research
Dist. Lecture Educational Research and Methods Division

Room 211, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

For too long researchers have hid behind false notions of objectivity and and neutrality to avoid holding themselves accountable for the harms committed in the name of research.

However, as the racially-centered events of the last two years have demonstrated, the time for accountability is now. But rather than reflect on past wrongs, the Year of Racial Equity gives us the opportunity to look forward.

We must and should reimagine a new path forward for educational research. We must rethink several fundamental aspects of the research process: our roles as researchers, our relationship to various concepts (e.g. neutrality, objectivity, bias), even what research can and cannot do.

Our new path forward requires dismantling the status quo and rebuilding the research process to reflect a new set of goals and values, goals and values that empower us and challenge us to move beyond the white-centered way research exists today.

The purpose of this Distinguished Lecture is to begin a conversation on what a paradigmatic shift in engineering education research looks like. What does the path forward look like today? What does it look like in 10 years? In 20 years? Institutional change always starts with individuals and we have an opportunity to move the field of engineering education research forward in ways that empower everyone.

Moderated by
  • Dr. Stephanie Cutler
Speaker
  • Stephanie Masta
    Purdue University

    Stephanie Masta is an Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Purdue University, with courtesy appointments in the School of Engineering Education in the College of Engineering and the Department of American Studies in the College of Liberal Arts.

    Dr. Masta is one of the leading scholars in the field of Indigenous Education, as her research forefronts the centrality of Indigenous education within Curriculum Studies through the development and use of Indigenous methodologies to study Indigenous student experiences in educational contexts. She has extended her work on critical and Indigenous methodologies to engineering educational spaces, where she studies the experiences of Brown and Black students’ perspectives in engineering classrooms.

    Her work in Indigenous education and engineering education has led to invited talks at institutions such as University of Arizona, Iowa State University, Hobart and William College, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, University of Colorado-Boulder, Drexel University, the University of Michigan, and Clemson University. In February 2020, she was the invited keynote speaker for the Racial Healing Project, an annual event at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. The Racial Healing Project is a major initiative by the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to address covert and overt manifestations of racism, to reconcile the historical trauma and legacies of racism in the United States, and to provide strategies to combat racism across campus.

    Dr. Masta currently leads two research projects, Connecting Identity and Place: Understanding Indigenous Graduate Student Experiences in STEM, funded by the Spencer Foundation. She is also a co-PI on Identifying Marginalization and Allying Tendencies in Engineering Teams, funded by the NSF. In addition to these current projects, Dr. Masta served as PI on The Experiences of Native Women in Higher Education, funded by the Purdue University Susan Bulkeley Butler Research Fellowship, and Colonial Discourses: Challenging Dominant Narratives in U.S. History Curricula, funded by the Purdue Research Foundation.

    She also served as co-PI for Four Directions: Building a Foundation for Native Scholars, funded through the Purdue University Diversity Transformation Award. Additionally, Dr. Masta has authored many peer-reviewed journal articles, including articles in the high-impact journals, Anthropology & Education Quarterly, International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, Teaching in Higher Education and Studies in Engineering Education.

    She has written one book chapter titled, "How American Indian students make sense of school success," and has co-edited one book, "Ideating pedagogy in troubled times: Approaches to identity, theory, teaching, and research."

    Collectively, Dr. Masta's scholarship speaks to a wide range of educators, researchers, and community members interested in the use of critical and Indigenous methodologies to understand racism and marginalization in educational spaces.

    Dr. Masta has offered more than 35 international, national, and regional presentations at Indigenous education, curriculum studies, engineering education, and educational research conferences.

W434A·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: The Trouble with Passion: How Searching for Fulfillment at Work Fosters Inequality
Dist. Lecture Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division

Auditorium 2, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

A co-sponsoring group of Community Engagement, LEES, and Equity, Culture & Social Justice support Erin Cech as a distinguished lecturer for the Annual Conference 2022. Erin will primarily outline the main arguments from her recent book exploring the passion principle. For engineering students, educators, and engineering professionals we hope that the lecture would encourage us to think through how inequities in success and bouncing back from failure develop from passion-seekers differential access to springboards and safety nets.
Second, passion-seeking can entrench occupational gender and race segregation when entwined with social biases about who fits in what fields.

Finally, passion can be exploited by employers and managers in such a way that the passion principle reinforces neoliberal norms of personal responsibility that obfuscate institutions from blame for addressing structural obstacles that students and workers face.
The “great quit” and skepticism of higher education is arguably a moment of reconciling the tensions.

Follow your passion is a popular mantra for career decision-making in the United States. In this talk, I discuss my forthcoming book on this ubiquitous cultural narrative that I call the passion principle. The passion principle is rooted in tensions between postindustrial capitalism and cultural norms of self-expression and is compelling to college-educated career aspirants and workers because passion is presumed to motivate the hard work required for success while providing opportunities for meaning and self-expression.

Although passion-seeking seems like a promising option for individuals hoping to avoid drudgery in their labor force participation, I argue that the passion principle has a dark side: it reinforces socio-economic disadvantages and occupational segregation among career aspirants and workers in the aggregate and helps reproduce an exploited, overworked white collar labor force.

These findings have implications for cultural notions of "good work" popular in higher education and the US workforce and raises broader questions about what it means when becoming a dedicated labor force participant feels like an act of self-fulfillment

Moderated by
  • Dr. Scott M Ferguson
Speaker
  • Dr. Erin A. Cech
    University of Michigan

    .Dr. Erin Cech is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and the Department of Mechanical Engineering (by courtesy) at the University of Michigan.

W434B·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: Queering STEM Culture in US Higher Education: Navigating Experiences of Exclusion in the Academy
Dist. Lecture Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division

Auditorium 3, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

ASEE has taken on several DEI initiatives over the years, the current Year of Impact on Racial Equity is a case in point.

The topic for this distinguished lecture continues the conversation of justice and inclusion within higher education, particularly in the world of STEM.

The invited speakers are three leading experts in the field of racial, ethnic, gender, LGBTQ+, and intersectional issues. They have held leadership positions in ASEE and in other institutions where they have promoted engagement in application of their own research.

Drs. Kelly J. Cross, Stephanie Farrell, and Bryce Hughes will use their experience editing a book on Queering STEM Culture to bring powerful narratives of inclusion and exclusion from our own STEM post-secondary peers to the attention of ASEE. It is a bit unusual in that all three co-editors will be on stage, but we hope that the multiple standpoints will represent the values of diversity ASEE members promote.

The talk will be both reflection on existing challenges as well as guidance to become allies.Book SummaryAdopting an intersectional lens, this timely volume explores the lived experiences of members of the queer and trans community in post-secondary STEM culture in the US to provide critical insights into progressing socially just STEM education pathways. Offering contributions from students, faculty, practitioners, and administrators, the volume highlights prevailing issues of heteronormativity and marginalization across a range of STEM disciplines.
Autoethnographic accounts place minority experiences within the broader context of social and cultural phenomena to reveal subtle and overt forms of exclusion, and systematic barriers to participation in STEM professions, academia, and research.

Finally, the book offers key recommendations to inform future research and practice. This volume will benefit researchers, academics, and educators with an interest in higher education, engineering education, and the sociology of education more broadly. Those involved with diversity, equity, and inclusion within education, queer theory, and gender and sexuality studies will also benefit from this volume.

W477·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: Meditations on the Words of a Black King: The Wicked Problem of Shallow Understanding
Dist. Lecture ASEE Committee on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

TBD, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

"Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will"

These words were penned by the scholar, reverend, and activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while sitting in a Birmingham city jail in 1963. His righteous indignation was on full display as he felt frustrated that the white people who expressed sympathy with his pursuit of justice were more a hindrance to his efforts than the white people who were ardently against justice for Black people. King's words resonate with me almost 60 years later, though our current circumstance is not entirely analogous.

Today, my efforts, and those of many Black friends and colleagues, to actualize racial equity in engineering education are constrained greatly by our :
"well-intentioned" and sympathetic colleagues. Unlike King who was referencing white moderates, I refer to people of all races, as anti-Black prejudice and internalized racism expand perpetrators beyond just white people.
In this address, I will discuss how shallow understanding, a superficial understanding of the contributing factors to racial inequity, remains a grand challenge to racial equity in engineering education. I will share my thoughts on the implications of this wicked problem for engineering teaching, research, and practice.

Moderated by
  • Ms. Rachelle Reisberg
Speaker
  • Dr. James Holly, Jr.
    University of Michigan

    Dr. James Holly, Jr. is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and core faculty member within the Engineering Education Research program at the University of Michigan. He earned a bachelors degree from Tuskegee University and a masters degree from Michigan State University, both in Mechanical Engineering. He earned his doctorate in Engineering Education from Purdue University.

    His research paradigm is shaped by his experiences growing up in a Black church within a Black city and later studying engineering at Tuskegee University, a Black institution, three spaces where Blackness is both normal and esteemed. As such, he sees his teaching, research, and service as promoting pro-Blackness, affirming the humanity and epistemic authority of Black people in engineering education.

    His scholarship focuses on the ways disciplinary knowledge (i.e., mechanical engineering) reinforces racialized power, the role of culture and cognition in teaching and learning, and preparing pre-college engineering educators to identify and counteract racial inequity. He helped create the Equity, Culture, and Social Justice in Education Division within ASEE, and serves on the Editorial Board for both the Journal of Engineering Education and the Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research.

W414·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: The Future is Brown and Black: Re-imagining our Relationship with Research
Dist. Lecture Educational Research and Methods Division

Room 211, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

For too long researchers have hid behind false notions of objectivity and and neutrality to avoid holding themselves accountable for the harms committed in the name of research.

However, as the racially-centered events of the last two years have demonstrated, the time for accountability is now. But rather than reflect on past wrongs, the Year of Racial Equity gives us the opportunity to look forward.

We must and should reimagine a new path forward for educational research. We must rethink several fundamental aspects of the research process: our roles as researchers, our relationship to various concepts (e.g. neutrality, objectivity, bias), even what research can and cannot do.

Our new path forward requires dismantling the status quo and rebuilding the research process to reflect a new set of goals and values, goals and values that empower us and challenge us to move beyond the white-centered way research exists today.

The purpose of this Distinguished Lecture is to begin a conversation on what a paradigmatic shift in engineering education research looks like. What does the path forward look like today? What does it look like in 10 years? In 20 years? Institutional change always starts with individuals and we have an opportunity to move the field of engineering education research forward in ways that empower everyone.

Speaker
  • Stephanie Masta
    Purdue University

    Stephanie Masta is an Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Purdue University, with courtesy appointments in the School of Engineering Education in the College of Engineering and the Department of American Studies in the College of Liberal Arts.

    Dr. Masta is one of the leading scholars in the field of Indigenous Education, as her research forefronts the centrality of Indigenous education within Curriculum Studies through the development and use of Indigenous methodologies to study Indigenous student experiences in educational contexts. She has extended her work on critical and Indigenous methodologies to engineering educational spaces, where she studies the experiences of Brown and Black students’ perspectives in engineering classrooms.

    Her work in Indigenous education and engineering education has led to invited talks at institutions such as University of Arizona, Iowa State University, Hobart and William College, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, University of Colorado-Boulder, Drexel University, the University of Michigan, and Clemson University. In February 2020, she was the invited keynote speaker for the Racial Healing Project, an annual event at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. The Racial Healing Project is a major initiative by the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to address covert and overt manifestations of racism, to reconcile the historical trauma and legacies of racism in the United States, and to provide strategies to combat racism across campus.

    Dr. Masta currently leads two research projects, Connecting Identity and Place: Understanding Indigenous Graduate Student Experiences in STEM, funded by the Spencer Foundation. She is also a co-PI on Identifying Marginalization and Allying Tendencies in Engineering Teams, funded by the NSF. In addition to these current projects, Dr. Masta served as PI on The Experiences of Native Women in Higher Education, funded by the Purdue University Susan Bulkeley Butler Research Fellowship, and Colonial Discourses: Challenging Dominant Narratives in U.S. History Curricula, funded by the Purdue Research Foundation.

W434A·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: The Trouble with Passion: How Searching for Fulfillment at Work Fosters Inequality
Dist. Lecture Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division

Auditorium 2, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

A co-sponsoring group of Community Engagement, LEES, and Equity, Culture & Social Justice support Erin Cech as a distinguished lecturer for the Annual Conference 2022. Erin will primarily outline the main arguments from her recent book exploring the passion principle. For engineering students, educators, and engineering professionals we hope that the lecture would encourage us to think through how inequities in success and bouncing back from failure develop from passion-seekers differential access to springboards and safety nets.
Second, passion-seeking can entrench occupational gender and race segregation when entwined with social biases about who fits in what fields.

Finally, passion can be exploited by employers and managers in such a way that the passion principle reinforces neoliberal norms of personal responsibility that obfuscate institutions from blame for addressing structural obstacles that students and workers face.
The “great quit” and skepticism of higher education is arguably a moment of reconciling the tensions.

Follow your passion is a popular mantra for career decision-making in the United States. In this talk, I discuss my forthcoming book on this ubiquitous cultural narrative that I call the passion principle. The passion principle is rooted in tensions between postindustrial capitalism and cultural norms of self-expression and is compelling to college-educated career aspirants and workers because passion is presumed to motivate the hard work required for success while providing opportunities for meaning and self-expression.

Although passion-seeking seems like a promising option for individuals hoping to avoid drudgery in their labor force participation, I argue that the passion principle has a dark side: it reinforces socio-economic disadvantages and occupational segregation among career aspirants and workers in the aggregate and helps reproduce an exploited, overworked white collar labor force.

These findings have implications for cultural notions of "good work" popular in higher education and the US workforce and raises broader questions about what it means when becoming a dedicated labor force participant feels like an act of self-fulfillment

W434B·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: Queering STEM Culture in US Higher Education: Navigating Experiences of Exclusion in the Academy
Dist. Lecture Liberal Education/Engineering & Society Division

Auditorium 3, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

ASEE has taken on several DEI initiatives over the years, the current Year of Impact on Racial Equity is a case in point.

The topic for this distinguished lecture continues the conversation of justice and inclusion within higher education, particularly in the world of STEM.

The invited speakers are three leading experts in the field of racial, ethnic, gender, LGBTQ+, and intersectional issues. They have held leadership positions in ASEE and in other institutions where they have promoted engagement in application of their own research.

Drs. Kelly J. Cross, Stephanie Farrell, and Bryce Hughes will use their experience editing a book on Queering STEM Culture to bring powerful narratives of inclusion and exclusion from our own STEM post-secondary peers to the attention of ASEE. It is a bit unusual in that all three co-editors will be on stage, but we hope that the multiple standpoints will represent the values of diversity ASEE members promote.

The talk will be both reflection on existing challenges as well as guidance to become allies.Book SummaryAdopting an intersectional lens, this timely volume explores the lived experiences of members of the queer and trans community in post-secondary STEM culture in the US to provide critical insights into progressing socially just STEM education pathways. Offering contributions from students, faculty, practitioners, and administrators, the volume highlights prevailing issues of heteronormativity and marginalization across a range of STEM disciplines.
Autoethnographic accounts place minority experiences within the broader context of social and cultural phenomena to reveal subtle and overt forms of exclusion, and systematic barriers to participation in STEM professions, academia, and research.

Finally, the book offers key recommendations to inform future research and practice. This volume will benefit researchers, academics, and educators with an interest in higher education, engineering education, and the sociology of education more broadly. Those involved with diversity, equity, and inclusion within education, queer theory, and gender and sexuality studies will also benefit from this volume.

W477·DISTINGUISHED LECTURE: Meditations on the Words of a Black King: The Wicked Problem of Shallow Understanding
Dist. Lecture ASEE Committee on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

TBD, Minneapolis Convention Center

Session Description

"Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will"

These words were penned by the scholar, reverend, and activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. while sitting in a Birmingham city jail in 1963. His righteous indignation was on full display as he felt frustrated that the white people who expressed sympathy with his pursuit of justice were more a hindrance to his efforts than the white people who were ardently against justice for Black people. King's words resonate with me almost 60 years later, though our current circumstance is not entirely analogous.

Today, my efforts, and those of many Black friends and colleagues, to actualize racial equity in engineering education are constrained greatly by our :
"well-intentioned" and sympathetic colleagues. Unlike King who was referencing white moderates, I refer to people of all races, as anti-Black prejudice and internalized racism expand perpetrators beyond just white people.
In this address, I will discuss how shallow understanding, a superficial understanding of the contributing factors to racial inequity, remains a grand challenge to racial equity in engineering education. I will share my thoughts on the implications of this wicked problem for engineering teaching, research, and practice.

Moderated by
  • Ms. Rachelle Reisberg
Speaker
  • Dr. James Holly, Jr.
    University of Michigan

    Dr. James Holly, Jr. is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and core faculty member within the Engineering Education Research program at the University of Michigan. He earned a bachelors degree from Tuskegee University and a masters degree from Michigan State University, both in Mechanical Engineering. He earned his doctorate in Engineering Education from Purdue University.

    His research paradigm is shaped by his experiences growing up in a Black church within a Black city and later studying engineering at Tuskegee University, a Black institution, three spaces where Blackness is both normal and esteemed. As such, he sees his teaching, research, and service as promoting pro-Blackness, affirming the humanity and epistemic authority of Black people in engineering education.

    His scholarship focuses on the ways disciplinary knowledge (i.e., mechanical engineering) reinforces racialized power, the role of culture and cognition in teaching and learning, and preparing pre-college engineering educators to identify and counteract racial inequity. He helped create the Equity, Culture, and Social Justice in Education Division within ASEE, and serves on the Editorial Board for both the Journal of Engineering Education and the Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research.
