Dr. Brooke Madden
Assistant Professor, University of Alberta - Faculty of Education
Dr. Brooke Madden’s research focuses on the relationship between teacher identity and teacher education on the topics of Indigenous education and truth and reconciliation education. Her scholarship also explores whiteness and decolonizing processes, school-based Indigenous education reform, and Indigenous and decolonizing research methodologies. She works to acknowledge both her Indigenous (Wendat, Iroquois, Mi’kmaq) and settler (French, German, Irish, English) ancestries in complex ways that honour her relations, while acknowledging privilege and resisting appropriation of traditional knowledges and experiences that are not her own.
