Overview

  • Judy Sharkey is the John & H. Irene Peters Professor of Education in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of New Hampshire. She is also core faculty in the Women's & Gender Studies Department. She holds a Ph.D. in Language & Literacy Education with a concentration on Bilingual/Multicultural Education.

    Broadly speaking, her scholarship addresses some of the pressing challenges raised by the effects of globalization on public education while consistently working multiple dialectics: global-local; diversity-standardization; monolingual-multillingual; and, policy-practice. Within second language and literacy education, her research focuses on teacher/teacher educator learning and development in plurilingual, transmigrant and diaspora communities in the US, Colombia, and Pakistan.Dr. Sharkey's work advocates and advances critical self-reflexive and community-responsive approaches to teacher education, a position that invites and values the knowledge, experiences, and voices of students, families, and community members into the larger project of education in participatory democracies. She was a Fulbright Scholar in Mexico in 2008. In 2022 she will be a Fulbright Scholar in Ireland, hosted by the School of Education at the National University of Ireland: Galway.
