About Dr. Seraphin

Wideline is a Black feminist literacy scholar and teacher educator specializing in Black immigrant girls, critical media literacies, and social justice-oriented teacher preparation. As a critical scholar, her work explores how the complexities of immigrant status, ethnic and racial identity, gender, and language diversity intersect to shape the literate lives of Black adolescents in the United States. As an instructor, she works to introduce students to multiple perspectives of literacy to spark inquiry into teaching practices and disrupt restrictive ideologies of what it means to be a teacher and learner. In her free time, Wideline enjoys runs in the park, and is a card-carrying member of the Beyhive.
