Keynote Speaker for 2017 Bergamo Conference: Dr. Jerry Rosiek
July 27, 2017
Jerry Rosiek received his Ph.D. from Stanford University. He is currently a professor at the University of Oregon in the Department of Education Studies and is affiliated faculty in the Department of Philosophy. His empirical scholarship focuses on the way teachers think about
the mediating effects of culture, race, class, gender,
sexuality and social context on student learning. Most recently he completed a ten-year study on the curricular effects of the racial resegregation of a public school in the U.S. Southeast. The book based on that study is entitled
Resegregation as Curriculum: The Meaning of the New Segregation in U.S. Public Schools and won the AATC 2016 Book of the Year Award. Jerry’s theoretical scholarship explores the way pragmatic philosophy, new materialist philosophy of science, indigenous philosophy, and critical race theory provide promising ways to think outside of necessary, but increasingly wearisome foundationalism vs.
anti-foundationalism debates in the social sciences. His writing has appeared in major journals including Harvard Educational Review, Education Theory, Educational Researcher, Qualitative Inquiry, Curriculum Inquiry, Educational Psychologist, & the Journal of Teacher Education, as well as in The Handbook of Narrative Inquiry, The
Handbook of Teacher Education Research, The Handbook of Educational Ethnography, The Handbook of Curriculum, Pedagogy, and Assessment, and the Handbook of Arts-Based Research. He is also a father of a ten year old daughter, and a lead member of an award winning competitive BBQ Team.
