Sonoma State University. At Sonoma State, she teaches courses and advises students
within the English Education concentration. She teaches Youth & Literature,
Explorations in Language, Teaching Reading & Responding to Literature, as well as the
WIC course, Advanced Composition: Genre, Land, Race & Gender.

Her scholarly work draws from the fields of education, ethnic studies, and linguistic
anthropology to examine the varied roles of schooling and education within racialized
peoples’ desires for and efforts towards dignified lives. Her scholarship analyzes
processes and structures of racialization, whiteness, and settler colonialism, particularly
within places of schooling. Her research emphasizes the histories, narratives, and
politics of place in order to underscore connections between social practices and
material relations.

Dr. Burruel Stone completed her doctoral studies in Language, Literacy, and Culture in
the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley in 2019. Prior
to obtaining her Ph.D., she taught English Language Arts and Puente at public high
schools in the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California for eight years. Her
ethnographic and community engaged research has been funded by UC Berkeley’s
Center for Race and Gender and the Soroptimist Foundation. She has presented her
scholarship at conferences including the American Educational Research Association,
American Anthropological Association’s Council on Anthropology and Education, and
Critical Race Studies in Education Association. She is the recipient of the AERA Latinx
Research Issues SIG’s 2020 Dissertation Award and the International Association of Qualitative Inquiry's 2021 Illinois Qualitative Dissertation Award.
