Dr. Christianakis is an Assistant Professor of Education at Occidental College. Having received her Ph.D. in Language, Literacy, and Culture from University of California-Berkeley, she studies literacy development from a critical sociocultural perspective, primarily in urban and multilingual school contexts. Her work explores instructional practices related to the development of written language and, more broadly, how children negotiate academic membership within official school structures. Dr. Christianakis is also interested in literacy development in out-of-school settings, such as community and cultural centers. Her scholarly writing has focused on curriculum and instruction for culturally and linguistically diverse children.
