Personal bio
Christine Min Wotipka is Associate Professor (Teaching) of Education and (by courtesy) Sociology and Director of the Master’s Program in International Comparative Education and International Education Policy Analysis at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. She also serves as co-Resident Fellow at the Education and Society Theme (EAST) House. From 2012-2016, she was Faculty Director of the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Stanford University. Prof. Wotipka’s research centers around two main themes examined from cross-national and longitudinal approaches. The first relates to the progress and experiences of women in higher education (e.g., women in faculty positions and women’s participation in higher education as it relates to the rise in early childhood education). The second is that of citizenship and education. This work explores how social science curricula, in the form of textbooks, has shifted focus away from the development of national identities to ones that emphasize global citizenship in a diverse and multicultural society, which increasingly comprises all members of society, including women and children. Her articles have appeared in Social Forces, Sociology of Education, Feminist Formations, and Comparative Education Review. In 2010, Prof. Wotipka co-founded the Education and Society Theme (EAST) House – a living-learning space for undergraduates interested in educational research, policy, activism, and teaching. Dr. Wotipka leads a weekly seminar at EAST House titled “Current Issues and Debates in Education.” In addition to this and the seminars she leads for the master’s program, her main teaching contributions consist of gender-focused courses, in particular “Education, Gender, and Development,” which is cross-listed in Education; Sociology; and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Prof. Wotipka earned her BA (summa cum laude) in International Relations and French at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and MA in Sociology and PhD in International Comparative Education at Stanford University. Prior to joining the faculty at Stanford, she was an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and a visiting assistant professor/global fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles. Between her undergraduate and graduate studies, she proudly served as a United States Peace Corps volunteer in rural northeast Thailand.
