Michelle Honeyford


Associate Professor


Dr. Michelle Honeyford‘s research focuses on literacy, identity and citizenship, particularly around issues related to rights and representation. Her work involves building partnerships with teachers, schools, and communities to design more equitable, advocative and activist pedagogies for youth – including undocumented immigrant youth, youth in alternative education, and youth in afterschool programs – largely through writing, digital photography and multimodal literacies. She co-leads the Manitoba Writing Project with colleague Wayne Serebrin.
