Dr. Kristen E. Duncan is an assistant professor of Social Studies Education at Clemson University. Her research focuses on the ways Black teachers approach issues of race and racism with their students and the ways Africa and the diaspora are represented in social studies texts and experiences. Her research has been published in Educational Studies and Race, Ethnicity & Education. One of her primary goals as a teacher educator is to help her students develop a critical lens that they can apply it to issues including race and gender, in hopes that they will help their future K-12 students do the same. Prior to joining the faculty at Clemson University, she was a faculty member at Texas State University, and before earning her Ph.D., Dr. Duncan taught middle school social studies and served as an instructional coach in an elementary school in Georgia.
