Cathlin Goulding


I'm a doctoral student in Curriculum and Teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University--my research looks at how curriculum designers create educative spaces around violence and difficult historical moments. I'm very interested in "public pedagogies" like museums, digital simulations and reconstructions, web publishing, blogging, and zines/zine libraries. Before I started as a doctoral student, I taught high school English in the East San Francisco Bay and organized an online and print lit zine with my students. Theoretically-wise, right now I'm loving and using a lot of Hannah Arendt, Diane Scarry's work on the body and living in states of emergency, and Cathy Caruth on trauma and memory.
