Jennifer Sandlin

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, where she teaches courses focused on consumption and education, popular culture and justice, and social and cultural pedagogy. 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 work has been published in Review of Educational Research, Cultural Studies <=> Critical Methodologies, Adult Education Quarterly, International Journal of Lifelong Education, Qualitative Inquiry, International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, Curriculum Inquiry, Journal of Consumer Culture, and Teachers College Record. She recently edited, with Jake Burdick and Michael O’Malley, Problematizing Public Pedagogy (Routledge, 2014). She is co-editor of Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy and serves on the editorial boards of several adult education and curriculum studies journals. Jennifer received a B.A. in English Literature from Millsaps College, an M.A. in Anthropology from the University of New Mexico, and a Ph.D. in Adult Education from The University of Georgia.
