Lisa Mazzei’s areas of teaching and research include qualitative research methodology and curriculum theory. Her research is focused on a study of racial identity and awareness among white teachers and implications for curriculum.
Dr. Mazzei's research with white teachers has produced a growing body of work that strains notions of voice in qualitative inquiry. Namely, she has theorized and written extensively about silence as data and how thinking with theory opens up the process of data analysis in qualitative research. Her current methodological work is heavily under the influence of Material Feminist Theory. She holds an appointment as a Visiting Research Fellow with the Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI) at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), Manchester, United Kingdom.
