Dr. Gutiérrez serves as the Inaugural Provost's Chair at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is the past president of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Her research interests address the relationship between literacy, culture and learning, and target how students appropriate cultural concepts. Specifically, her work focuses on the processes by which people negotiate meaning in culturally organized contexts, using language and literacies that are embedded within socio-historical traditions. Issues of equity and excellence are recurrent themes in her work.
For more information about Dr. Gutiérrez and her research, please see her faculty profile page.
* Note: The public talk has been moved to Fraser Hall since the first announcement to accommodate a larger audience.
