230E Education Building
Prior to joining the faculty, Shannon D.M. Moore taught social studies and English in the public school system. Shannon completed her PhD in 2014 at the University of British Columbia. Her dissertation, Producing Pedagogy, explored ways in which youth inhabit and make sense of masculinities/femininities and sexualities as conveyed in visual digital media. Drawing on her previous research and K-12 teaching experience, she teaches courses in media education, social studies education, social justice pedagogy, and research methodologies. She is currently conducting a research project about media education, Democracy Depends on It: Media Literacies in the Social Studies Classroom. She also recently completed two research projects: In partnership with Dr. Oliveira Jayme, the first project explored teachers' experiences transitioning to remote online platforms through the pandemic. The second involved interviews with elite level hockey players about their experiences resisting hypermasculinity within hockey culture. As a result of this research, Shannon was invited to speak to the House of Commons' Standing Committee on the Status of Women.
Shannon is actively involved in Manitoba Social Science Teachers' Association (MSSTA), and is the managing editor of the MSSTA Journal. She is also the co-host of Public Good, a podcast about public education as a public good, and a founding member of People for Public Education.
She has three recent co-authored publications:
