Interests

My research interests include qualitative research using poststructural feminist and postcolonial lens', to examine current issues of racism, imperialism, patriarchy and other social injustices that affect bilingual, multicultural, and early childhood education. I enjoy critical qualitative research like discourse and content analysis that allows me to examine these relationships of power and see how they affect educational policy, curriculums, schools, and young children. Currently I have become interested in critical content analysis of children’s literature using feminist poststructural and postcolonial lenses to analyze of issues/themes of hegemony, patriarchy, and power techniques.
