Graduate Program Director, Associate Professor
Jennifer Stone is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Stone specializes in sociocultural and critical approaches to literacy studies. Her research focuses on how individuals, families, and communities accumulate literacy resources across home, community, school, workplace, civic, and affinity-based contexts. In particular, her work has examined the roles that language diversity, digital literacies, and popular culture play in contemporary American culture, as well as the implications of such resources for literacy teaching and learning. Her publications have appeared in a number of national and international journals and edited collections. Her latest research project is investigating the roles that language, literacy, and technology play in the lives of everyday Alaskans.
