Description/Abstract: C&T Colloquium: Children Framing Childhood & Looking Back, with Wendy Luttrell, Monday, 12/10, 5-7pm

Wendy Luttrell is Professor of Urban Education and Social-Personality Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Professor Luttrell is a leading authority on how urban American schooling shapes and reinforces beliefs about race, identity, knowledge, and power. She studies the process of self and identity formation and transformation in school settings and how gender, race, class, and sexuality systems of inequality take root in young people's self-evaluations and actions. She is the author of two award-winning books on this topic, Schoolsmart and Motherwise: Working-Class Women's Identity and Schooling (Routledge, 1997) and Pregnant Bodies, Fertile Minds: Gender, Race and the Schooling of Pregnant Teens (Routledge, 2003), which was recognized by the American Sociological Association with an Outstanding Achievement in Scholarship Award for its analysis of how pregnant women and young mothers are educated and the stigmas they face. Professor Luttrell is also the editor of Qualitative Educational Research: Readings on Reflexive Methodology and Transformative Practice (Rotledge, 2010).

Professor Luttrell will join us on Monday, December 10, from 5-7pm to discuss her longitudinal research, Children Framing Childhood and Looking Back, that traces the lives, concerns, and educational trajectories of a group of young people growing up in low-income communities of color in Worcester, MA. She also intends to weave together some theoretical and methodological implications of doing visual research with kids.

Professor Luttrell will be introduced by Esther Ohito, a doctoral student in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Teachers College.

This talk is part of the Curriculum and Teaching Colloquium Series organized by faculty in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching. The Curriculum and Teaching Colloquium Series was initiated in the Fall of 2012 and will serve as a privileged space for students to gain a broader awareness of curricular discussions through engaging with international and national scholars.

Persons interested in attending may rsvp by Thursday, December 6th.

The next C&T Colloquium Priorities in Teaching & Teacher Education, with Clive Beck & Clare Kosnik, will be held on Tuesday, February 12th, from 7-9pm.
