Shubhi Sachdeva specializes in early childhood education. Her experience in early education spans three countries, India, Taiwan, and the United States. Sachdeva is committed to exploring young children’s and their families' experiences with schools with attention to how issues of power, oppression, and resistance determine what children and their families are offered in learning spaces. Sachdeva uses video-cued multivocal multi-sited ethnography to understand how young children’s bodies are entangled with, and often constructed by the larger discourses in education. In her research, she pays attention to how curriculum, pedagogy, and classroom management practices are tied with modern democratic body politics and work towards inscribing children from marginalized communities as subpersons.
