Her research focuses on the ways in which urban youth negotiate Hip Hop music and culture to form social, cultural, and political identities to create new and sustaining ways of thinking about urban education. Her research is focused on transforming urban classrooms through the use of non-traditional educational curricula and classroom structures. Building on that theme, Dr. Love also has a passion for studying the school experiences of queer youth, along with race and inequality in education.” For more information on Dr. Love, feel free to visit her website at: http://www.bettinalove.com/
