About Dr. Linnea

Dr. Linnea Beckett

Linnea Beckett is an anthropologist of education with expertise in decolonial feminisms, informal learning, and community-engaged methodologies. Her research resides at the nexus of environmental justice and learning. She is currently the principal investigator (PI) on a Spencer Foundation-funded, community-engaged participatory research project designed to study intergenerational informal STEM learning in a Mexican immigrant-led community garden located at a public elementary school in a semi-rural agricultural area in California. Beckett is also the co-PI on a Belmont NORFACE National Science Foundation-funded Transformation to Sustainability international collaboration studying promising grassroots initiatives of people organizing around groundwater in places where pressures on the resource are particularly acute. Dr. Beckett currently serves as the director of a community-engaged research and learning program at UC Santa Cruz, where she works with undergraduates on these research projects and designs and facilitates community learning opportunities for undergraduates with environmental, food, and economic justice community organizations.
