Jie Park's research interests include adolescent literacy and language practices in school and out-of-school settings. For the past two years, she has been studying how first-generation immigrant students acquire academic discourses, and what cultural and linguistic resources they bring to their schooling. Her most recent work has been published in the Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, English Education, and Children's Literature in Education. Before coming to Clark, she was assistant professor of literacy education at Bard College's Master of Arts in Teaching Program.
