Nathaniel Bryan, Ed.D., Ph.D. is an assistant professor of Teaching, Curriculum, and Educational Inquiry and specializes in early childhood education. His teaching and scholarship explores issues of equity and diversity, critical race theory, culturally relevant teaching, urban education, and Black education. Though he studies broadly these frameworks, he is particularly interested in the constructed identities and pedagogical styles of Black male teachers and the schooling and childhood play experiences of Black boys in early childhood classrooms through a critical lens. In his spare time, Bryan enjoys reading novels, traveling abroad, and spending time with family.
