Bio

Maria F. G. Wallace is an Assistant Professor of Elementary STEM Education and Women & Gender Studies Program Faculty Affiliate at the University of Southern Mississippi. Earning a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction with specializations in Curriculum Theory, Science Education, and a graduate minor in Women’s & Gender Studies from Louisiana State University, Dr. Wallace's research and teaching aim to deterritorialize beginning (science) teachers’ subjectivities and practice. Drawing on conventional qualitative research methods and post-qualitative modes of inquiry, Dr, Wallace's research (re)imagines ways beginning science teachers are ‘known,’ named, and re/produced.
