Emily Tran


I am a student of American history who focuses on the history of education and public schooling in the United States. My research interests center on the intersection of race, education, and social memory. In particular, I am interested in the social memory of school desegregation in Boston, and the enduring social, political, and educational implications of the public’s historical consciousness of busing for school desegregation in that city.
