Christine E. Sleeter, PhD. is Professor Emerita in the College of Professional Studies at California State University Monterey Bay, where she was a founding faculty member. She has served as a visiting professor at several universities, including the University of Maine, University of Colorado Boulder, Victoria University of Wellington and Auckland University in New Zealand, San Francisco State University, and Universidad Nacional de Education a Distancia in Madrid, Spain. She is past President of the National Association for Multicultural Education, past Vice President of Division K (Teaching and Teacher Education) of the American Educational Research Association, and a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association. Her research focuses on anti-racist multicultural education, ethnic studies, and teacher education; her research in ethnic studies has helped support its recent expansion throughout California. She has published over 150 articles and 20 books, including Un-Standardizing Curriculum (2nd ed. with J. Flores Carmona, Teachers College Press) and Diversifying the Teacher Workforce (with L. I. Neal & K. K. Kumashiro, Routledge). Her newest book White Bread (SensePublishing), which is a novel, explores the profound impact of critical family history on teacher ethnic identity.
Dr. Sleeter will join us for an informal lunch, which will be provided by TeachingWorks, from 12-1. All you need to do is to RSVP here by Wednesday, January 17 and read one or both of the articles by Dr. Sleeter. Information about articles will be shared by Simona Goldin one week before the lunch. As Dr. Sleeter will be speaking from 4-6, she will not have any prepared remarks for this lunch event. Instead, she will join us for lunch and will engage in conversation and discussion with us, in consideration of our questions about her work.
