Kyrie Caldwell

Researcher & Evaluator

Kyrie E. H Caldwell, SM, is a Researcher & Evaluator on the Fair Play Project in WCER and on the HEAL Project in the Center for the Humanities. She conducts research and evaluation on educational equity across marginalized identities via a background in qualitative and humanist methodologies and feminist and social justice lenses. In particular, Kyrie has been active in numerous aspects of national and international research in games-based learning and digital games studies since 2013. Her interests lie in how the creative industries, including and beyond games, participate in, reflect, and challenge the complex systems of human learning, interaction, and emotionality, especially around transcending and changing oppressive roles and narratives. Previously, Kyrie has assisted with developing tools, curricula, and institutional processes around qualitative research and evaluation methods; she has also assisted in curating artworks on paper. Kyrie holds an SM from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Comparative Media Studies and a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Art History and Religious Studies.
