Kelly Clark/Keefe

Associate Professor, UVM College of Education and Social Services

Kelly Clark/Keefe is an Associate Professor in the College of Education and Social Services at the University of Vermont, where she engages in teaching and service activities across the Department of Leadership and Developmental Sciences, including the Higher Education and Student Affairs, Human Development and Family Sciences, Educational Leadership, and Educational Foundations programs. Kelly’s research brings material feminist and poststructural theories of embodiment, agency, subjectivity and language to bear on a range of overlapping topics including: the physicality of educational subjectivity (with an emphasis on college student identity), sociocultural studies of stratified versions of schooling and college access, and conceptual analyses of educational leadership. Kelly’s research interests also extend to the study of the social sciences themselves, whereby she engages philosophies of language and affect to argue the usefulness of embodied, arts-informed methodologies.
