Event Description:

Come be part of this brown-bag noon-time lecture series, an opportunity to listen to women faculty on campus share their research interests, achievements, and to create much-needed conversation about faculty interests on campus.   FEATURED PRESENTERS:  Rosemary Henze, Professor, Linguistics and Language Development & Katherine Masters, Lecturer, English & Comparative Literature.  TOPIC: "Problem Posing, Partnership, and Inquiry-Based Language Learning in Nicaragua"


Rosemary Henze is a professor of Linguistics and Language Development at San José State University, where she teaches courses on intercultural communication and language teaching pedagogy in the MA TESOL program. Her research centers on applying concepts from anthropology and linguistics to promote social justice, positive intercultural relations, and effective leadership.  Her two most recent projects include a documentary film about Muslim women and the hijab (Just  Piece of Cloth, 2013) and a partnership with a Nicaraguan NGO in which she and colleagues are supporting rural teachers to integrate language inquiry in their curriculum. Her prior publications include The power of talk (Corwin press, 2009); How real is race? (Rowman and Littlefield Education, 2007); Leading for diversity:  How school leaders promote positive interethnic relations (Corwin Press, 2002); and “Metaphors of diversity, equity, and intergroup relations in the discourse of school leaders” (Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, 2005). 


Katie Masters is a lecturer in the Department of English and Comparative Literature where she teaches composition and developmental writing. Her research interests include creating meaningful developmental writing curricula; developing better communication among K-12, community college, and university reading and writing programs; and improving social justice and equitable educational opportunities nationally and internationally. Her recent project "Revisiting the Approach to and Curriculum Design of English/LLD 100A" reviews SJSU's developmental writing course English/LLD 100A and suggests shifts in the curriculum to promote student success. She received her Master's degree in Linguistics from University of California, Davis.
