James C. Jupp works as Assistant Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Georgia Southern University. He worked in rural and inner-city Title I settings for eighteen years before accepting a position working with teachers, administrators, and researchers at the university level. A public school teacher in diverse rural poor and inner-city Title I schools, his first line of research focuses on committed White teachers’ understandings of race, class, language and difference pedagogy. Drawing on his experiences as teacher, he is the author of "Becoming Teachers of Inner-city Students," a piece which adds to discussions of White teachers recently published in Urban Education. Additionally, drawing on his experiences living and studying in Spanish language traditions in Mexico and Texas, his second line of research develops cosmopolitan Hispanophone curriculum for educating Latino students. Emerging from his concerns for understanding cultural differences in education, cosmopolitan Hispanophone curriculum seeks to develop historicized critical understandings of difference in education. James C. Jupp has published more than twenty scholarly articles in a variety of journals including the Gender and Education, Urban Education, Curriculum Inquiry, Journal of Curriculum Theorizing, International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, International Journal of Qualitative Methods, Journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies, the Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, The English Journal, and Multicultural Review. His second book, Becoming Teachers of Inner-city Students, will be published on Sense Publishers in 2013.
