Dr. Cristina Delgado

PhD, BA & M.Ed. (University of Siena, Italy)

Instructor - ECCE

Cristina has been teaching at Capilano since 2005. She pursued her pedagogista studies at the Univeristy of Siena (Italy) and finished her doctoral work at UBC in 2012. In her doctoral work she addressed the ethical question of living well with others within pedagogical contexts. This scholarship focused on the relation between the conceptualization of community and the possibilities for the teacher as a thinking subject. Her current research interests and activities further this focus, with the addition of areas such as problematizing issues of subjectivity in relation to prescribed practices in early childhood education, documentation and curriculum innovation, and the reconceptualization of pedagogical relationships from post-structuralist, post-humanist and matierial feminist theorizations. In her work as pedagogista she is also inspired by pedagogical work that understands curriculum and subjectivity as emergent as well as considering the life of curriculum from tangible and intangible formations.
