Susannah Livingston

PhD Researcher



Susannah Livingston (MA, Johns Hopkins University) is a critical educator in New York City.  Her work in critical pedagogical theory draws from her background as an Indigenous American as well as her work in public and non-public urban school systems.  Susannah has degrees in American Indian Studies and Education from Rutgers and Johns Hopkins Universities, which guide her work in researching both the practical applications of and the philosophies behind critical pedagogical theory in American schools.  Susannah’s work is based in the Freirian principles of challenging hegemonic power structures by critical education, and seeks to explore applying critical pedagogical practices to non-public schools as a method of stopping the cycle of students as cultural capital.
