Patricia Hinchey holds a doctorate from Teachers College, Columbia University. At
Penn State, she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in curriculum and instruction
as well as educational theory and policy. Her many publications take a critical perspective
on a variety of education related topics; her books include an award-winning introduction
to critical theory, a critical analysis of graduate education, and an action research
primer. She is a fellow at the National Education Policy Center.
The Critical Conversations in Policy and Social Justice series is sponsored by the
CUC Center for Policy and Social Justice. The Center is dedicated to exploring policy
as a catalyst for a socially just world through research, education, advocacy, and
dissemination. The Center involves people from across the university and the disciplines
in academic and activist endeavors that impact and reward social policy in a manner
such that it manifests in more human and humane ways. The Center is committed to cultivating
civil discourse around often contentious issues, and situates its work at the intersection
of dialogue and debate.
