Avraamidou, Lucy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this multiple case study was to uncover a series of critical events and experiences related to the formation of the science identities of four beginning elementary female teachers, through a life-history approach and a conceptualization of teacher identity as "lived experience." Grounded within the theoretical framework of…

Page-Reeves, Janet; Marin, Ananda; Moffett, Maurice; DeerInWater, Kathy; Medin, Douglas – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This paper discusses findings from 40 ethnographically inspired interviews with 21 Native science professionals conducted in two iterative phases (21 in Phase I and 19 in Phase II), and a structured dialogue workgroup session with a six-member subset of the interviewees. Interview and group questions were open-ended to allow the participants to…

Le, Paul T.; Matias, Cheryl E. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The hope for multicultural, culturally competent, and diverse perspectives in science education falls short if theoretical considerations of whiteness are not entertained. Since whiteness is characterized as a hegemonic racial dominance that has become so natural it is almost invisible, this paper identifies how whiteness operates in science…

McMahon, Tracey R.; Griese, Emily R.; Kenyon, DenYelle Baete – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
With growing evidence demonstrating the impact of undergraduate research experiences on educational persistence, efforts are currently being made to expand these opportunities within universities and research institutions throughout the United States. Recruiting underrepresented students into these programs has become an increasingly popular…

Stevenson, Alma D.; Gallard Martínez, Alejandro José; Brkich, Katie Lynn; Flores, Belinda Bustos; Claeys, Lorena; Pitts, Wesley – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article highlights how the preservation of heritage languages is essential in the construction of three Georgia Latina participants' cultural identities and the creation of support networks that allow them to develop resiliency and achieve academically. We conceptualize resiliency as a strategy developed by the Latina participants using…

Glass, Rory – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This commentary explores some of the salient aspects of Lucy Avraamidou's study, specifically those of identity and the origins of those characteristics. I begin by considering the literature on identity and highlight some theoretical considerations, with an understanding that identity is fluid and an aspect of oneself in the making. Of particular…

Higgins, Marc; Kim, Eun-Ji Amy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this article is to differentially engage in the work of thinking with Indigenous theorists and theories with decolonizing science education research methodologies in mind. As a rejoinder to Tracey McMahon, Emily Griese, and DenYelle Baete Kenyon's "Cultivating Native American scientists: An application of an Indigenous model to…

Ivarsson, Jenny – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this forum article, I reflect on the findings by Eva Silfver in "Gender performance in an out of school science context." Silfver has studied a class of 14-15-year-old students during a visit to a science center. The students are supposed to write a computer program that will steer a Lego car. In their activities, Silfver identifies…

Wiseman, Dawn; Herrmann, Randy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This contribution engages in conversation with McMahon, Griese, and Kenyon (this issue) to consider how the SURE program they describe represents a pragmatic approach to addressing the issue of underrepresentation of Indigenous people in STEM post-secondary programs. We explore how such programs are generally positioned and how they might be…

Rodéhn, Cecilia – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This forum article discusses learning and teaching in Science Centres in relation to gender. The starting point of this discussion is Eva Silfver's paper "Gender performance in and out-of-school science contexts." In response to this article I discuss the discourse of gender in research on Science Centres and museums. Moreover, the text…

Silfver, Eva – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article examines how school students perform gender during a visit to a science centre where they programme Lego cars. The focus is on how students relate to each other--how they talk and what they do. Theoretically, the article draws on the 'heterosexual matrix' and a Foucauldian understanding of how power and knowledge are tightly…

Wooten, Michelle M. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Research on science teaching and learning commonly makes use of reductionism to specify conditions of science learning. In my studies of academics'-of-science-teaching-&-learning (academics'"-of-st&l") research practices and values, I discuss how philosophic inquiry shifted my research practices from reductionism to critical (or,…

Marker, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
While some Indigenous individuals have achieved "success" in STEM careers, persistent questions from many Indigenous scholars and communities about epistemic dominance at universities remain. Going beyond student achievement, this essay regards the centering of local Indigenous place based knowledge as a paradigm shifting move for…

Kayumova, Shakhnoza; McGuire, Chad J.; Cardello, Suzanne – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this conceptual paper, we draw upon the insights of Feminist Science Studies, in particular Karen Barad's concept of agential realism, as a critical analytical tool to re-think nature and culture binaries in dominant science knowledge-making practices and explanatory accounts, and their possible implications for science education in the context…

Kloser, Matthew; Wilsey, Matthew; Hopkins, Dawn W.; Dallavis, Julie W.; Lavin, Erin; Comuniello, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In the last decade, STEM-focused schools have opened their doors nationally in the hope of meeting students' contemporary educational needs. Despite the growth of these STEM-focused institutions, minimal research exists that follows how schools make a transition toward a STEM focus and what organizational structures are most conducive to a…
