My research explores changing narratives about motherhood and parenting, the role of storytelling within feminist and social justice movements, the creative work of women writers in Africa and the African diaspora, and teaching in the field of Women’s and Gender Studies. I also write personal essays and book reviews.
My areas of interest include anti-Latinx discrimination in education, Latina/o social and personal identities, and institutional inequality across race, class, gender, and migration status. I approach my teaching from a feminist and anti-racist social justice perspectives. As a comprehensive advocate of inclusion and social equality, I am passionate about mentorship and service.

I work at IBM Research in Cambridge MA USA, where I do social science research – usually with IBM-internal data. Current projects focus on employee engagement; ethics of AI agents and robots. Wellesley College (Wellesley MA USA) has kindly granted me the title of Visitor, to support my collaborations with the HCI Lab at Wellesley. I am also passionately interested in social justice, and I try to work as an ally with various progressive groups. I try to inform my research with an interest in how groups know together, and especially with whom we co-construct our knowledge. I recently moderated a panel on social justice at the CSCW 2017 conference. In the past, I have tried to enrich methods for workplace democracy in the design of software and hardware technology. From a Humanities perspective, I am interested in learning from texts — especially social texts — an in how people collaborate through their social texts. I use mixed methods to address these questions, including grounded theory method and quantitative text analytic methods.
Ambereen Dadabhoy completed her Ph.D. in English literature from Claremont Graduate University in 2008. She has taught at Bogaziçi University in Istanbul and Harvey Mudd College in California. What both of those experiences share are intellectually curious students, stimulating environments, and challenging courses. Ambereen’s teaching and research focus on early modern English literature, specifically drama and the representation of race and religion on the English stage. She also is passionately committed to social justice work inside and outside of the classroom and higher education.

In addition to teaching as an adjunct for community colleges in Oregon and California, I currently serve as teaching learning center coordinator, online English faculty mentor, and community-based learning coordinator. I have taught composition and rhetoric at private research institutions, small liberal arts colleges, state universities, and community colleges. In recent years, I have served as co-editor of an accreditation self-study, interim grants officer, and academic department assessment coach. Combining my passions for professional development and social justice, I continue to seek the sweet spot between digital humanities and online community-based learning.
