What do you do?
I study visual learning practices in preschool, k-12, and university settings. I make comics to translate my research into fuller-bodied, expressive, and provocative scholarship.
How do you do it?
I am an ethnographer and a cartoonist. This means I combine traditional ethnographic practices with making comics. Oftentimes, research participants draw and make comics too.
Where can people find your work?
My scholarship has appeared in leading journals, like Visual Arts Research, and is featured in the anthology With Great Power Comes Pedagogy: Teaching, Learning, and Comic Books.
I am a 2017 Rona Jaffe Writer’s Award Fellow, and am the first multi-media writer to receive this award in the Rona Jaffe Foundation’s twenty-three-year history. My first graphic novel, Hot Comb, will be published by Drawn & Quarterly in May, 2019.
