Dr. Collier researches in the areas of multimodality and everyday literacies, and is especially interested in collaborative, participatory research with children and others. Using arts-informed, qualitative, and ethnographic methodologies, she focuses on literacies-in-process and playful improvisation. She researches how children use everyday texts (particularly images and popular culture) to connect with audiences both globally and locally, across home and school.
