Identity | Heidi Carlone

Hooks Distinguished Professor of STEM Education, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

Heidi Carlone is a learning researcher whose work examines identity in concert with the study of culture. She studies an individual’s "performance," in relation to what is demanded, celebrated, and marginalized in the setting they are in. Her work assumes that the identity-related outcomes of any given set of practices, or local context, are often heavily shaped by larger social structures, like race, and class and gender.

In this four-minute video, Heidi shares her perspective on defining and studying STEM identity. The interview was 45 minutes in totalread all of Heidi's responses in the full transcript.
