Belén Hernando-Lloréns, Ph.D.

Dr. Belén Hernando-Lloréns earned her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, under the co-advice of Thomas Popkewitz and Erica Halverson. Her scholarship explores the historical production of racial and linguistic diversity as a pedagogical problem, in the US and in Spain. She is specifically interested in the interplay of discourses of conviviality and bilingualism in the making of educational problems. Her inquiry is situated in spaces of knowledge production that go beyond the traditional classroom space, like educational policy, scientific reports, judicial sentences, media, virtual learning platforms, or the historical archive. Dr. Hernando-Lloréns’ research is located at the intersection of curriculum studies, cultural studies, and race and critical language studies in education. Her work has been published in Curriculum Inquiry, Journal of Curriculum Studies, or Bilingual Research Journal.
