November 29, 2018

UW-Madison Associate Professor Rachelle Winkle-Wagner and two graduate students collaborated and published a new, path-breaking book that explores how researchers and scholars can translate their work to reach a more diverse audience in a way that promotes equality.

Critical Theory and Qualitative Data Analysis in EducationWinkle-Wagner collaborated with Jamila Lee-Johnson and Ashley Gaskew to edit, “Critical Theory and Qualitative Data Analysis in Education.” Their work explains how critical theories can inform research processes, like data collection and interpretation, in qualitative research and analysis.

To do so, the authors offer examples and new tools of qualitative data analysis techniques and empirical studies that employ critical theory concepts in data analysis.

Winkle-Wagner is a faculty member with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, and a faculty affiliate of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE). Lee-Johnson is a doctoral student with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis (ELPA), and Ashley Gaskew is a doctoral candidate with ELPA, as well as the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.

The Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE) is hosting a book launch event on Monday, Dec. 3. The event, which is free and open to the public, runs from noon to 1:30 p.m. in room 159 of the Education Building.
