Dr. Steinberg is the Director and Chair of The Werklund Foundation Centre for Youth Leadership in Education, and a Professor of Youth Studies at the University of Calgary. She is the author and editor of many books in critical pedagogy, urban and youth culture, and cultural studies.
Dr. Steinberg’s work focuses on the cultural/social/educational development of youth. She is concerned with how society views young people, and her work creates an environment in which youth are viewed as positive democratic agents within society. The co-founder of the Paulo and Nita Freire International Project for Critical Pedagogy, she is the organizer of The Critical Pedagogical Congress.
She is committed to a global community of transformative educators and community workers engaged in radical love, social justice, and the situating of power within social and cultural contexts.
