EDUCATION

STATEMENT

I am interested in cities, arts, and social change, particularly on the level of social interaction and the production of "community". I investigate the role of culture in reproducing and transforming social inequality, and research conflict around diversity and difference.  As a long-time cultural worker and activist, I have worked with many women's cultural organizations on issues of violence prevention, self-expression, and arts and culture. I have taught courses in education and in sociology at Penn, Moore College of Art and Design, and Ursinus College. Outside of higher education, I am a longtime community-based educator, having worked with K-12 students and adults in museum settings, nonprofits, and a variety of arts organizations, including The Girls’ DJ Collective, of which I am co-founder.
