D. Ted Hall is Assistant Professor in Literacy, Culture, and Language Education at Indiana University in Bloomington. He is also a graduate of Fort Wayne’s now defunct Elmhurst High School. He specializes in community-university partnerships, visual culture, new literacy studies, cultural studies, and critical literacy, especially as they pertain to the lives and learning of African American youth.
Hall's scholarship examines racial relations and other forms of structural inequality in schools. It also takes as an inspiration the visionary strategies developed by local communities and liberatory movements to build a more just society. His current research project, a collaborative partnership with the Indianapolis Housing Agency and Indianapolis Public Schools, uses film, literature, oral histories, media productions and museums as texts to engage youth in critical conversations around issues related to global social justice.
