Professional Interests: 

Dr. Galman is an anthropologist of education and visual artist. Her research interests are: 1) the anthropology of childhood and childhood studies, 2) gender studies, including but not limited to critical explorations of girl culture, carework and motherhood, and 3) the working lives of female primary school teachers, their nascent feminized and/or feminist practices in the classroom and the way they make sense of doing carework.  Her interest in the lives of care-workers, mothers and the youngest children stems from her belief in their vulnerabilities in the contemporary policy environment, but also in their abilities to be "unruly" agents of resistance and change (Khanna, 2012). Along with colleague Laura Valdiviezo, she is the Editor-in-Chief of Anthropology and Education Quarterly. Dr. Galman grew up in northern Japan and attended Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii.
