Colette Daiute: Professor, Researcher & Author
Colette Daiute is a Professor of Psychology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Dr. Daiute was previously a professor at Harvard University and Columbia University Teachers College. Colette Daiute does research, writing, and teaching on human development -- individuals and collectives -- in challenging and rapidly changing circumstances. Her research focuses on social, cognitive, and emotional development with children, youth, and adults in situations of displacement, migration, political violence, increasing cultural diversity, and inequality. The research paradigm of Daiute and her students involves studying development within innovative activities in educational and community organizations where people use language and other culture media to make sense of their situations and to make a difference. Daiute studies the human development process with critical and creative uses of cultural tools like language, literacy, digital storytelling, community organizations, policies, and laws. Among research grants, speaking invitations, and other honors, Colette is a Member of the National Academy of Education, a Fulbright Specialist, and Past-President of the Piaget Society for the Study of Knowledge and Development.
