Mindy is a Vice Chancellor’s Professorial Research Fellow. She is leading an interdisciplinary project on children’s common world relations with place, materiality, and the more-than-human.
Before becoming an academic, Mindy was a kindergarten and early years teacher in the USA. She has held university positions in the USA (University of Texas, Austin), Hong Kong (The Education University of Hong Kong), and Australia (RMIT, Monash University, Victoria University).
She is a co-founding member (with Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw, Western University, Ontario, Canada and Affrica Taylor, Canberra University) and principal researcher of the Common Worlds Research Collective. In 2016, she co-founded (with Emily Gray, RMIT and Linda Knight, QUT) the international and interdisciplinary collective, #FEAS, Feminist Educators Against Sexism.
Creating and practicing experimental and innovative pedagogies for the Anthropocene; interdisciplinarity; postdevelopmentalism; queer theory; feminism; post empiricism; multi-species ethnography.
Mindy is interested in bringing together early childhood education and feminist environmental humanities to generate new pedagogies for the Anthropocene. In particular, she is curious about what we might learn by paying attention to children’s relations with place, materials, and the more-than-human and how this might activate pedagogies that can ethically attend to the common worlds we share.
Potential research students interested in creative practice, interdisciplinarity, environmental issues (water, waste, weathering), and pedagogies for the Anthropocene are encouraged to get in touch.
