I am currently Professor of Literacy, Culture, and Language Education here at Indiana University. I received my PhD in Curriculum, Teaching, and Educational Policy from Michigan State University, and my scholarship and teaching center on critical literacies and inquiry-based approaches for working with digital media and complex topics, especially climate change. I am the author of a number of journal articles and book chapters.
I am also the author of two books: Social Studies as New Literacies: Relational Cosmopolitanism in the Classroom (2011, with co-author, Mark Baildon); and Commemorative Literacies and Labors of Justice: Resistance, Reconciliation, and Recovery in Buenos Aires and Beyond (2022, with co-authors, Loren Lybarger and Edward Brudney). I'm also currently finishing another book titled, Confronting Denial: Literacy, Social Studies and Climate Change (2022, with co-author Mark Baildon).
