Garnett Russell
Graduate Dissertation Fellow 2012-2013, International and Comparative Education

Garnett Russell is a doctoral candidate in International and Comparative Education at Stanford University. Her research focuses on post-conflict education, human rights education, and gender and conflict both at the cross-national and national levels. Her dissertation investigates the role of education policy in promoting reconciliation and civic identity at the school level in Rwanda in the post-genocide period. She combines quantitative data from surveys with qualitative data from interviews, classroom observations, and content analysis of textbooks and education policy documents to investigate the discourse surrounding human rights, reconciliation, and gender equality at the national and school level. Her research illuminates the vital role of curriculum and education policy for nation-building, engendering a new civic identity, and for the facilitation of conflict resolution and peace-building in a post-conflict milieu.
