Dr. Rogers is known for her work in the areas of adolescent/youth literacies and critical perspectives on literature teaching. Her recent articles and the book, Youth, Critical Literacies and Civic Engagement: Arts, Media and Literacy in the Lives of Adolescents, focus on the critical and creative work of youth across communities and schools -- a multi-year study located in Vancouver, Canada. She is currently working on a project on spatiality, mobilities and critical literary interpretation.
