Christine Min Wotipka is Associate Professor (Teaching) of Education and (by courtesy) Sociology and Director of the Master’s Program in International Comparative Education and International Education Policy Analysis at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. She also serves as co-Resident Fellow at the Education and Society Theme (EAST) House. From 2012-2016, she was Faculty Director of the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Stanford University. Her research centers around two main themes examined from cross-national and longitudinal approaches. The first relates to the progress and experiences of women in higher education, namely women in faculty positions. The second, that of citizenship and education, explores how social science curricula, in the form of textbooks, has shifted focus away from the development of national identities to ones that emphasize global citizenship in a diverse and multicultural society. Her articles have appeared in Social Forces, Sociology of Education, Feminist Formations, and Comparative Education Review.
