Dennis J. Sumara
Department Head, Curriculum Studies
University of British Columbia

I work in the area of curriculum studies, with a specific research interest in literary engagement as a site for learning. As well, I conduct research into the experience of identity, with particular attention to identities that fall outside normative boundaries. My latest book is with Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, and is entitled "Why Reading Literature in School Still Matters: Imagination, Interpretation, Insight." I am starting a new three year research project that will study the experiences of counternormativity within the context of pre-service teacher education.
