Research

research overview

  • Dr. Ramirez’s current research draws on her foundation in dialogism and narrative study as well as her work co-directing the CU Dialogues Program and serving as an Assistant Director in MASP to develop, theorize and study dialogue experiences as a form of engaged, inclusive learning about cross-cultural perspectives. She was the Co-PI on a multi-year research project, funded by the Spencer Foundation and Hewlett Foundation, to development measurements for assessing dialogic and deliberative engagement across difference in educational settings. Her earlier body of research studies narrative mappings of place in 19th/20th C. western American literature and how these narrative mappings dialogically intersect with contemporary public memory of western places.
