Thomas III, Daniel Assistant Professor


Dr. Daniel Thomas III is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching in the School of Education, and he holds a courtesy appointment with the Department of African and African American Studies. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin and was awarded the university's Outstanding Dissertation Award. Dr. Thomas' scholarship focuses on the intersection between two strands of research--anti-Black historical discourse and the contemporary experiences of Black men and boys within secondary education. His first strand currently explores the critical, antiracist practices of Black men serving as teacher-coaches. The second strand examines how Black boys encounter and resist anti-Blackness within predominantly White and private Catholic high schools. His work has been published in Theory & Research in Social Education, Race Ethnicity & Education, Teachers College Record, Urban Education, and the Peabody Journal of Education.
