Profile: Benjamin Justice

Department Chair, Educational Theory, Policy, and Administration| Associate Professor


I am an historian interested in American education. My research is wide-ranging, from colonial times to present, engaging a variety of themes at the intersection between the state and its constituent people. This includes problems of religious and cultural diversity, civic identity formation, education in non-schooling settings, and education as an imperial policy. I teach courses on the history of education and history education, and direct the Social Studies Education Program at the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers.
