About Alba Isabel

I’m a Ph.d. student of Curriculum, Instruction and Teacher Education at a university situated on Anishinaabe land. My research draws from decolonizing educational practices; Land-based pedagogy; Youth-directed learning; Culturally Sustaining and Revitalizing Pedagogies; Critical Race Theory; Multicultural Epistemologies; Ethnography. If “there must exist a paradigm, a practical model for social change that includes an understanding of ways to transform consciousness that are linked to efforts to transform structures” (hooks, 1995), I ask what knowledges from  youth of color, previously omitted from antiquated curriculum and pedagogical models, can contribute to positive social change?
