Current Project

Between 1948-2002, the national land-grant and cooperative extension systems published several official documents on the nature, purpose, and direction of extension work. Utilizing critical discourse analysis, my work examines the pedagogical, epistemological, political, and cultural assumptions and implications of these documents.
