Dr. Holloman is a Research Fellow at Centre for Race, Education, and Decoloniality within the Carnegie School of Education. She is also Co-Director of the Same Skies Think Tank, a regional democracy organisation in West Yorkshire.
Tiffany is a historian and sociologists who researches the dynamics of gender, race, and power from early modern to contemporary societies. Incorporating methods of New Historicism, Black Feminist Theory and Critical Race Theory, she uses an interdisciplinary approach to better understand government and higher education structures in society. To her, underdevelopment is a human sacrilege leading to superficial hierarchies and exploitation.
Tiffany’s current research delves into the underdevelopment of higher education institutions through its exploitation of racial hierarchies in the US and the UK. Bringing an awareness of Historically Black Colleges and Universities abroad, she seeks to expand on why HBCUs continue to exist and why they are necessary and how they can be used as an example for decolonising curriculums. Furthermore, her work challenges the word, “prestige” in relation to governmental structures and higher education institutions in that historically there is something amiss between ideals and human development. This has enlarged her research and participation to include the politics of regional democracy and devolution.
