Abdul Qadir Islam is an Instructor in the MA in English Education Program in the Department of Arts & Humanities at Teachers College, Columbia University. Abdul Qadir is a Ph.D. student in the English Education program where he examines the literacy practices and discourses employed by Black and Immigrant males as they engage with literary and figurative constructions of masculinity both in and out of school. Abdul Qadir is interested in how literacies of the body, both expressive and receptive, are (re)formed, (re)configured, and (co)negotiated within communities of purpose. Currently, Abdul Qadir is working on a pilot study to examine the literacies of masculinity formation and the narratives shared in a high school and community center. Professionally, Abdul-Qadir has worked full-time in public and independent schools in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and New Hampshire.
