Dr. Casey Burkholder, an assistant professor in the faculty of education at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, is currently working on two unique research projects that seek to address the inclusion and exclusion of queer, trans and non-binary people within schools, social studies classrooms and curricula, in particular.

Working with both youth and pre-service teachers, Dr. Burkholder’s research aims to impact the practice of teaching LGBTQ+ inclusive histories in social studies within New Brunswick and beyond. Dr. Burkholder works with participatory visual research methodologies to address community issues and push toward social change. These methodologies include cellphilming, which integrates cellphones with video production and thinking more deeply about the practice of producing and disseminating fieldnotes within educational research.
