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. From 2012-2016, Prof. Wotipka was Faculty Director of the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Stanford University. Her 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, namely women in faculty positions. The second, that of citizenship and education, 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. 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. She has served as co-Resident Fellow at EAST House since 2006. In addition to the seminars she leads for the ICE/IEPA master's program, she teaches "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.
