Please join us in congratulating University of Arizona College of Education Professor of Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies and Director of Worlds of Words - Kathy Short in being appointed as one of The University of Arizona newest Regents Professors.
The Arizona Board of Regents voted Friday to confirm the appointments of five new Regents Professors. The university's highest faculty rank honors exceptional achievements that merit national and international recognition.
Prof. Short created "critical content analysis," a research methodology that analyzes text and images found in children's literature to measure how literature shapes children's views of the world. Prof. Short has written, co-written or co-edited numerous books that have become among the most cited in the field and have served as resources for educators around the world. She established Worlds of Words in 2007 to serve as an outreach space for faculty, students and the public; the center has more than 50,000 visitors each year.
Congratulations, Prof. Short!
