Carmen Medina

Associate Professor

Carmen's research examines literacy/biliteracy as decolonial, social and critical practices, performative pedagogies, and Latinx children's literature. For the past 10 years, she has returned to Puerto Rico, engaging with children and teachers in critical literacy work as emerging decolonial knowledge production at the intersection of local and transnational social issues.

She is co-author with Dr. Karen Wohlwend of Literacy, Play and Globalization: Converging Imaginaries in Children's Critical and Cultural Performances (2014) and co-editor of the volume Methodologies of Embodiment: Reinscribing bodies in qualitative research (2015) with Dr. Mia Perry.
