Ohio State University professor gives two invited campus lectures

Patti Lather, a nationally known expert in qualitative research, feminist methodology, and gender and education, will speak Feb. 11-12 at the first of the College of Education’s Invited Scholar Series on Research.

Lather, a professor of education at Ohio State University, will make the first of two presentations, open free to the public, “Engaging Science Policy: From the Side of the Messy,” from 2–4 p.m. in Rooms F-G at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel.

In her work, Lather examines various (post) critical, feminist and poststructural theories. Her most recent study focuses on the implications for qualitative inquiry of the call for scientifically-based research in education.

Lather will make a second presentation entitled “On (Not) Studying the Intersection of Sports and U.S. Secondary Schooling: A Report on (Very) Early Thinking Towards a Project,” Feb. 12 from 9:30-11 a.m. in Room 115C of the Ramsey Student Center.
