Assistant Professor


Jeremy W. Bohonos is an Assistant Professor in Adult, Professional, and Community Education at Texas State University. He earned his B.A. in History at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI), an M.A. in History from Ball State University, and a Ph.D. in Education Policy, Organization and Leadership with a specialization in Human Resource Development (HRD) from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Before pursuing his Ph.D., he worked as a career advisor who provided services to students enrolled in GED, vocational education, and adult degree completion programs.


Much of Dr. Bohonos’ research employs intersectional analysis focusing on organizational (in)justice with a special emphasis on race and racism in the workforce. In investigating this topic, he uses several research methodologies, including critical race spatial analysis, ethnography, autoethnography, and narrative inquiry. He also conducts research regarding the history of Adult Education, adult learning through music, and mobile learning in sub-Saharan Africa.


Dr. Bohonos’ service commitments include positions as an Assistant Editor for New Horizons in Adult Education and Human Resource Development, editorial board member for Advances in Developing Human Resources, Chair of the Academy of Human Resource Development’s (AHRD) Critical Theory and Social Justice Perspectives Special Interest Group, and reviewer for several leading journals in Adult Education, HRD, and Gender & Women’s Studies.
