Dr. Justin P. Jiménez (he/they) is a recognized transdisciplinary teacher-scholar-activist bridging insights from the fields of education, critical race feminisms, and decolonial thought to illuminate the conditions, challenges, and possibilities of redressing the enduring acts/processes of violence and dispossession. He has worked collaboratively with students, educators, and community members to engage research-creation as a methodology for attuning to the character of our relationships in teaching and learning contexts; confront the historical legacies of trauma; and construct reparative modes of speculation as an entry point to more ethical futures.

Justin's current projects include exploring notions of eros, radical interdependence, and resistant liveness in both teacher preparation and K-12 settings, as well as dissident knowledge productions in the academy.

At Tufts, Dr. Jiménez teaches courses on the social and cultural foundations of education, culturally sustaining and popular pedagogies, critical race feminisms, and feminist inquiry methods. He has also supported directed studies and peer teaching programs at the University.

Dr. Jiménez earned degrees from University of Pennsylvania (International Education and Development) and University of Minnesota (Education/Feminist Studies) and is currently pursuing additional coursework at Harvard.
