Emery Petchauer's research has focused on the aesthetic practices of urban arts, particularly hip-hop culture, and their connections to teaching, learning and living. He is the author of "Hip-Hop Culture in College Students' Lives" (Routledge, 2012), the first scholarly study of hip-hop culture on college campuses, and the co-editor of "Schooling Hip-Hop: Expanding Hip- Hop Based Education Across the Curriculum" (Teachers College Press, 2013). Nearly two decades of organizing and sustaining urban arts spaces across the U.S. inform this scholarly work. Petchauer also studies high-stakes teacher licensure exams and their relationship to the racial diversity of the teaching profession, a line of inquiry that earned him the 2018 Innovations in Research on Equity and Social Justice in Teacher Education Award from the American Educational Research Association. His most recent book, "Teacher Education at Minority-Serving Institutions: Programs, Policies, and Social Justice" (Rutgers University Press, 2017), received the 2018 Exemplary Research in Teaching and Teacher Education Award, also from the American Educational Research Association. Petchauer also holds a faculty appointment in the Department of English and coordinates the secondary English education program.
