Karen L. Tonso is an assistant professor of Social Foundations in the College of Education at Wayne State University. She uses approaches common to cultural anthropology to study the structure of schooling, especially the myriad ways that everyday life in learning communities contributes to the social and cultural production of inequality along gender, race, and social class lines. In her cultural studies of engineering education, she brings to bear 15 years of experiences as a reservoir engineer in the petroleum industry. Her research in engineering education received the 1999 Mary Catherine Ellwein Outstanding Dissertation Award (Qualitative Research Methodology) and the 1998 Selma Greenberg Distinguished Dissertation Award (Research on Women and Education) from the American Educational Research Association. In other projects she examined the contributions of “standardized” schools to rampage violence at Columbine High School and the impact of a decision to decharter a middle school on the education of African American children.
