As a professor of educational leadership at Temple University, James’ research interests focus on urban education policy, equity and access to higher education and gender studies (men and masculinity). He has specifically investigated the influence of social contexts of learning, including school, family and community settings, with a concern for how gender and race inform education and social outcomes, particularly among young African-American men.
James currently serves as a senior research associate at the National Center on Fathers and Families, an interdisciplinary policy research center in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. His work has appeared in numerous academic journals, including Gender & Society, Urban Education, Educational Researcher, Youth & Society, American Journal of Evaluation and Review of Research in Education.
