Joycelyn Wilson is an integrative curriculum designer and educational anthropologist who studies Hip Hop culture and digital media in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech. She is the founder of the HipHop2020 Innovation Archive. Her current work leverages the connections between hip hop's techno-pedagogical affordances and relationship to design thinking in computational media-making. She is the brains behind the OUTKAST Imagination, an analysis and design tool applied in Google Arts and Culture’s “Atlanta: Bold and Beautiful” and Amazon Future Engineer’s "Your Voice Is Power", where students used hip hop as a design remix to learn to code through music production and advance racial equity through lyric-writing. Dr. Wilson received her BS in Mathematics and PhD in the Social Foundations of Education from the University of Georgia, and her MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the Graduate School of Education and Psychology at Pepperdine University.
