Jessica Lee Stovall’s research sits at the intersection of Black Studies and education. In her current work, Jessica employs notions of educational fugitivity to theorize how Black teachers co-construct Black space, and how these curated Black-affirming places are rehumanizing and sustaining for Black teachers. Jessica’s research has been generously funded by the Spencer dissertation grant, the Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship, and the Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching grant, among others. Before starting her doctoral studies at Stanford, Jessica taught ELA 11 years in the Chicagoland area.
