Sociocultural and Community-based Approaches
Diane Codding is a Ph.D. in Education student specializing in Sociocultural and Community-Based Approaches in the School of Education at the University of Delaware. Her current research interests include the role of culture and community in equitable education, race and diversity in education, and teaching as a means for social justice.
Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, Codding obtained her B.A. degree from McMurry University with a double major in English and Religion. She went on to earn her Master of Theological Studies from Candler School of Theology at Emory University, where her thesis explored teaching methods in light of the metaphoricity and narrative gaps inherent in parabolic literature. While completing her M.T.S. degree, she participated in an exchange program with Teologiska Högskolan Stockholm, where she studied human rights and peace building.
After returning home, Codding went on to teach English Language Arts at Dover High School in Dover, Delaware for four years, during which time she earned her M.A. in Secondary Teaching from Wilmington University.
