Research Summary

Errante's research interests include the history of education (colonial/post-colonial transitions, oral history), comparative education and community violence. She has worked extensively in lusophone and sub-saharan Africa conducting cross-national studies of community interventions in addressing the needs of militarized and war-affected children, youth and their families. This work has branched out to include the psycho-sociocultural dynamics of trauma and healing, conflict, reconciliation and the long term consolidation of peace She is especially interested in the role of shame and humiliation in violence and reconciliation and is a coordinating member of the Education Team of the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies Group, a global and cross-disciplinary network of scholars examining the role of humiliation in violence and its proliferation. In the United States, her work has examined the impact of current school reform on the cultivation of schools as shame cultures, and the subsequent impact of this on violence and aggression in school contexts.
