Bilingual Italian/Australian Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Education, Curtin University, Western Australia
Stefania draws on two decades of sustained research collaboration with Reggio Children and with the Municipal Infant-toddler Centres and Preschools, Istituzione of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, to investigate possibilities for early childhood education and care as the common good. Stefania’s work questions the boundaries between theory, research and practice, and is informed by philosophy and by aesthetic and ethico-political concepts.
She is currently leading a research project investigating the role of the pedagogista in the educational project of Reggio Emilia. In her research, Stefania dialogues with approaches to post-qualitative inquiry, illuminating the capabilities of teachers, children and materials as co-researchers through pedagogical documentation.
Stefania is also a member of the Council for Childhood and the City, Scuola Pablo Neruda (Reggio Emilia, Italy) and Deputy Chair of the School Council, Lance Holt School (Fremantle, WA).
Stefania will be presenting breakout sessions / workshops on the
13th - 14th of August 2023.
