Andrea Dyrness is an Associate Professor of Educational Studies at Trinity College. Her scholarly interests focus on the relationship between education and struggles over cultural rights, identity, and inclusion in societies affected by transnational migration. In particular, she has focused on the citizenship practices of transnational Latino communities in the United States, Central America, and most recently, Spain. In her courses, students engage “the local” and “the global” through fieldwork in local schools and community organizations and readings and films that offer transnational perspectives on critical educational issues.
Andrea received her B.A. in Anthropology & Educational Studies from Brown University and her Masters and Ph.D. in Social & Cultural Studies in Education from the University of California at Berkeley, and was a Fulbright Fellow in El Salvador.
