Shannon Moore is currently an assistant professor of social studies education in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, at The University of Manitoba. Through her research she has explored: student responses to to social justice pedagogy; gender, specifically 'male' youths' understandings of masculinities; media education and media literacies in the social studies context; and the use of digital video production in pedagogy and research. She is currently employing critical discourse analysis to consider the ways in which neoliberal discourses are reconfiguring teaching and curricula, undermining public education, and destabilizing democracy in the Canadian context. Shannon also hopes to continue research on the use of social justice and playful pedagogies in formal educational spaces.
