Dr Hunter Knight


Assistant Professor, Brock University, Canada



Hunter Knight is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Child and Youth Studies at Brock University. Her research focuses on the entanglements between colonialism and constructions of childhood, especially the ways that colonially-informed logics of the human, structured by race and disability, inform what is understood to be natural or normal about childhood. Most recently, her work explored these connections within the context of Waldorf elementary schools, examining how Waldorf educators navigate colonial legacies in the ways in which they understand childhood. Her work has appeared in Curriculum Inquiry, Global Studies of Childhood, and Pedagogy, Culture, & Society.
