  • Research Statement

    I am interested in community-engaged learning that is done in partnership with community organizations oriented to social change. I have taught a community-engaged language learning course for the last 5 years. My dissertation research is intertwined with my community-engaged pedagogies, using ethnographic methods to discuss what it means to learn with and from the community. I am incredibly humbled by opportunities to engage with, learn from, and collaborate with community organizations in New Brunswick, NJ. Community organizers have been my greatest teachers during graduate school.

    “Emergence notices the way small actions and connections create complex systems, patterns that become ecosystems and societies. Emergence is our inheritance as a part of this universe; it is how we change. Emergent strategy is how we intentionally change in ways that grow our capacity to embody the just and liberated worlds we long for.” (Adrienne Maree Brown)
