Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor, University of Georgia
Stephanie Jones likes thinking about how learning happens, including how children and adults learn and mutate the literacies of misogyny, sexism, racism and classism.
Her most recent research focuses on an informal neighborhood play space, where she uses feminist new materialist theories to make sense of power, place and possibility. She is concerned about issues of justice and the opportunities people have or don’t have to expand and change in ways they find inspiring and fulfilling.
Stephanie’s research has been recognized nationally and internationally, including two awards in the United States for her latest book, On Mutant Pedagogies: Seeking Justice and Drawing Change in Teacher Education(with James F. Woglom).
This lecture is in support of HeForShe UN Women Solidarity Movement for Gender Equity.
