Dr. Strong is an assistant professor in the Education, Culture, and Society program, a member of the graduate group in Anthropology, and a faculty affiliate of Africana Studies. She holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley, where she was named a Fulbright-Hays Fellow, a Spencer Dissertation Fellow, a Ford Foundation Dissertation Fellow, and a University of California Dissertation Fellow. In 2017, she was awarded the Council on Anthropology and Education’s Presidential Early Career Fellowship. Her work has been published in the Journal of African Cultural Studies and Urban Education. Dr. Strong’s research and teaching combine anthropological approaches to formal and non-institutional educational processes, politics and activism, youth, new media technologies, and popular culture in Africa and the African Diaspora. Topically, she focuses on the politicization and cultural practices of youth, the ambivalent role of educational institutions in the social reproduction of power and privilege and as critical sites of political struggle, and the intersections of these processes across transnationally and digitally networked spaces.
