Jocelyn Robinson, MA

Antioch University Online

Formerly a federal Department of Education grant administrator at a Historically Black College/University in southwest Ohio, she also teaches at the college level. Her courses blend literature, film studies, African American studies, women’s studies, and other disciplines to provide students with challenging educational experiences that are relevant to their daily lived experiences. She incorporates critical cultural theory and her research interests in self-definition and identity into these offerings and is adept at guiding diverse student populations through discussions of difference—and commonality. In addition, she is a skilled writing coach who assists essay writers in finding and expressing their authentic voices.

An accomplished musician, gardener, equestrian, and social justice activist who has been engaged in the life of her community for over 50 years, she is also a public radio producer. She served as 91.3 FM WYSO’s first Archives Fellow, creating short documentary pieces that aired from 2014-2017, using the station’s historical audio as source material. She is currently engaged in exploring partnerships and opportunities for at-risk audio collections and is a member of the African American and Civil Rights Caucus of the Radio Preservation Task Force, an initiative of the Recorded Sound Preservation Board of the Library of Congress.

“The learning process is something you can incite, literally incite, like a riot.” ~Audre Lorde (1934-1992)
