Rebekah Willett

University of Wisconsin-Madison
Assistant Professor
I currently teach courses on young adult literature, multicultural literature for children and young adults, pedagogy, informational divides, and online participatory cultures. I have conducted research on children’s media cultures, focusing on issues of gender, play, literacy, and learning. My publications include work on playground games, amateur camcorder cultures, young people’s online activities, and children’s story writing. My most recent research is on makerspaces in public libraries.
