Biography

Kortney Sherbine is an Assistant Professor of Literacy in the School of Teacher Education and Leadership at Utah State University. Her research examines children’s literacy encounters, particularly those involving popular culture, in early childhood and elementary classrooms. Her work has appeared in the Journal of Early Childhood Literacy and Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, among other journals and edited volumes. She is a former elementary grades teacher.


Research Interests

Dr. Sherbine draws on ethnographic methods to study children's literacy encounters in classrooms. Her work is informed by poststructural and posthumanist philosophies and involves examinations of the ways in which relationships, affect, and embodiment afford the emergence of literate identities for young readers and writers. An additional strand of Dr. Sherbine's research is concerned with preservice teachers' beliefs about teaching and learning, the factors that inform beliefs, and how beliefs manifest and change in practice during coursework, field experiences, and student teaching.
