Identity | Angela Johnson

Professor of Educational Studies, St. Mary's College of Maryland

Angela Johnson is a former physics teacher whose research examines the intersection between race, gender, culture and an individual’s recognition of and affiliation with the STEM community. She examines the ways in which “settings” sometimes reinforce equity disparities, particularly in higher education. Her work also seeks to provide solutions for changing the setting to support legitimate affiliation with science, especially for women of color. 

In this two-minute video, Angela shares her perspective on defining and studying STEM identity. The interview was 40 minutes in total—read all of Angela's responses in the full transcript.
