Hi, my name is Zane Wubbena. I completed my Ph.D. in School Improvement at Texas State University, where I received the 2017 Outstanding Doctoral Student Award. Before entering the doctoral program, I was a special education teacher at the elementary and middle school levels. My research interests include service-learning, critical pedagogy, media studies, and educational policy. My dissertation examined how the news media have framed educational policy and pedagogy globally. My more recent research has focused on the theory of emotional inhibition and expressive writing therapy and as a social-emotional intervention that teachers and school counselors can use for helping kids who have experienced some sort of trauma (e.g., bullying and school shootings). My research interests carry over to my service to the scholarly community, where I serve as website director for the John Dewey Society, education editor for the journal Cogent Education, and associate editor for the journals Dewey Studies and The Journal of School & Society. Please use this website as a resource to learn about my research and teaching. If you have a question, send me an email: zwubbena[@]gmail.com.
