Huriya  Jabbar

Huriya Jabbar

Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Administration, College of Education
jabbar@austin.utexas.edu

Expertise: Huriya's research interests are related to the social and political dimensions of privatization and market-based reforms in education, especially school choice and its implications for equity and diversity. A second strand of research examines how research on such reforms is used by policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels. Huriya is currently working on several projects related to school choice and charter schools. Building on her dissertation research, she is examining competition for teachers in New Orleans schools, school-level marketing strategies, and the political economy of market-based reforms in New Orleans. In collaboration with researchers at the <a href="http://educationresearchalliancenola.org/" target="_blank">Education Research Alliance-New Orleans</a>, she is working on a project analyzing student mobility from pre-Katrina to the present day, and on a project examining how schools form niches in the marketplace by examining school websites and teacher survey data.

Alissa R Sherry

Associate Professor, Department of Educational Psychology, College of Education
asherry@austin.utexas.edu
+1 512 695 9878

Expertise: My research interests to date have comprised general areas of constructivist theory, including aspects of the cognitive construction of attachment and the role of identity in diverse populations. This has led to an appointment as Associate Director for the Center for Women's and Gender Studies over the past 2 years. I have also published in the area of psychological assessment, mostly in an effort to stay current with my teaching expertise in assessment and forensic evaluation. Combining my interest in diversity identity and forensic evaluation, I have been working on a book project about two women who exposed a Federal Judge in Galveston for sexually harassing them. This led to an FBI investigation, Congressional hearings and his conviction on federal charges. He served 4 years in prison. The book project looks at these two women and the role of their personal histories in determining the path each took in dealing with the harassment and having the courage to come forward. From this story comes an interest in civic duty (both because these women were federal employees and the duty they felt to come forward and report their harassment) and an interest in political psychology. With the generous help of Sharon Jarvis from the Department of Communications, we are currently working on projects exploring the ways in which attachment predicts political affiliation and how this may or may not be mediated by news media consumption. We are ultimately interested in how this extends to voting and civic participation.
