My name is Chris K. Bacon, and I am a doctoral candidate in Language, Literacy, and Culture at the Boston College Lynch School of Education.
My qualitative and mixed-methods research revolves around bilingualism, literacy, and educational policy. I ground my work at the intersections of race, language, and dialect in educational spaces through critical pedagogies anti-racist curriculum.
As a former high school English teacher, K-12 Literacy Coach, and Peace Corps Volunteer, my commitment to educational justice stems from over a decade of work in urban, international, multilingual educational settings.
I currently teach undergraduate and graduate courses in bilingualism, literacy, and research methods.
