Dr. Huber joined the faculty as an Instructor in 2014. She does research at the intersections of pedagogy, performance, and intercultural communication. Her recent book Communicating Social Justice in Teacher Education: Insights from a Critical Classroom Ethnography (2022) examines how ideas of social justice are articulated and communicated by pre-service teachers and graduate teaching assistants in the US. Using a social justice framework, the book examines the ways in which new teachers contend with their identities as educators, and demonstrates how these communicative performances influence pre-service and new teachers’ perceptions of their role, as well as their responsibility to engage with social justice and critical approaches in the classroom. Her book co-authored with Dr. Chris McRae, Creating Performances for Teaching and Pedagogy: A Practice Session for Pedagogy (2017) offers a conceptual framework for employing creative practices as a starting point for theorizing pedagogy and developing teaching methods that are grounded in aesthetic, creative, and critical approaches to education. Her working projects engage creative practice, collaboration, and social justice.
