Beth Herbel-Eisenmann is a professor in mathematics education in the College of Education, director of the Program in Mathematics Education (PRIME), and has scholarly responsibilities at the University of South-Eastern Norway.

Much of her work has focused on ideas of positioning, storylines, authority and power in mathematics classrooms and teacher professional development and how these might be intentionally considered and enacted to support students’ developing identities as mathematics learners, counter oppressive myths about mathematics, and change practices and policies that are oppressive.

She is committed to participatory approaches and works in long-term partnerships with secondary mathematics teachers who engage in action research and youth in informal settings who engage in youth participatory action research.
