About Sydney Pullen

I'm originally from South Carolina, where I completed my undergraduate education at the University of South Carolina in 2011. Broadly, I am interested in education inequities and alternative education models, in both formal and nonformal contexts. The big question that I frequently think about is: Under what circumstances is education a force for change rather than stasis? 

Research interests: education inequities, alternative education models, pedagogy, racial capitalism, social movements, political economy, applied anthropology; Southeastern US, Latin America.
