About C. Amelia Davis

I am an Assistant Professor of Educational Research in the Department of Curriculum, Foundations, and Reading in the College of Education at Georgia Southern University. I earned my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and Research with a concentration in Adult Education at the University of Tennessee in 2012.
My research interests focus on qualitative research in adult basic education, particularly research involving school push-out, youths transitioning as adult learners, instructional strategies for adult basic education, and ethical practice. I am also interested in assumptions and knowledge claims made regarding adult basic education student populations. I have an ardent interest in qualitative research methodology including critical ethnography, performance ethnography, narrative, and discourse analysis.
At Georgia Southern University I work with graduate students pursuing their Masters, Specialist, and Doctorate degrees in education. I currently teach four research courses including an Introduction to Educational Research course and both Introduction and Advanced Qualitative Methods courses.
