Otterbein University

Westerville, OH— The Department of Sociology, Criminology and Justice Studies at Otterbein University will host “Inclusion and Exclusion in Australian Higher Education: The Case of Young People Seeking Asylum,” a lecture by Dr. Julie White, at 5 p.m. on Oct. 11, in room 110 of Towers Hall, 1 S. Grove Street. Dr. White is a professor and principal research fellow at The Victoria Institute, Victoria University in Melbourne, Australia.

Dr. White is involved in multiple research projects focused on social justice. She pilots a large study on youth justice, investigating how education can better serve young people while they are incarcerated. In another project, she examines how the arts can support young people from refugee backgrounds in the combat of Islamophobia and racism. She has undertaken several studies about the education of young people who live with chronic health conditions and has written more than 50 scholarly publications about research methods, educational inclusion, and the contemporary university.
