Conference Key Note Speaker Announced

We are extremely pleased to confirm this year’s keynote speaker for the Public Pedagogies Institute conference, November 12 and 13, 2015.

Jennifer A. Sandlin, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Justice and Social Inquiry department in the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University.

Her research focuses on the intersections of education, learning, and consumption, as well as on understanding and theorizing public pedagogy. Through her current research projects, she explores the Walt Disney Corporation and the myriad ways its curricula and pedagogies manifest, and seeks to understand what it means to teach, learn, and live in a world where many familiar discourses are dominated by Disney as a global media conglomerate.

Her publications include (with Brian Schultz and Jake Burdick), Handbook of Public Pedagogy (Routledge, 2010); and (with Jake Burdick and Michael O’Malley), Problematizing Public Pedagogy (Routledge, 2014).  She is currently co-editor of Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy.
