Anthony Brown is an Associate Professor at the University of Johannesburg in the Department of Educational Psychology. Anthony was born during the South African Apartheid era to mixed race parents and his ‘misplaced’ identity led to numerous moments of exclusion and discrimination. His personal search for acceptance along the intersections of race, class and sexuality motivated him to become a teacher of diversity education.  His scholarship of teaching and learning leans towards critical inclusivity for students with minority identities specifically those with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, expressions and sex characteristics. Anthony holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of Namibia, M.A Special Education, Leeds University (U.K) and Doctor of Education from Birmingham University (U.K).  He is lecturing Inclusive Education to undergraduate and postgraduate students.  He is also responsible for teaching methodologies to Life Orientation student teachers. His participatory pedagogical approaches prepare students for a pluralistic world that enable them to confront, re-examine and raise consciousness of their own assumptions and identities. Anthony works with various civil society organisations to bridge the gap between experiential learning and theoretical knowledge.  He frequently engages in public dialogues to facilitate inclusivity and safe socio-educational environments for diverse sexual orientations and gender expressions. He has authored various scholarly articles that address notions of social justice and inclusion.
