Dr. Kaltefleiter is a professor in the Communications Studies Department. Without a doubt, her ongoing work at SUNY Cortland has been done so through the lens of support - she's helped countless students from around the region and the world understand their own potential. Dr. Kaltefleiter’s commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, and inclusion can be seen in every single student she's impacted during her career. She has continuously integrated issues of race, class, and gender into her teaching, into her conversations, into her family and the world around her. She encourages students to not only read the texts of well-known white authors, but under-appreciated authors of color. She dismantles the hierarchy of academia by expanding her students' horizons. Dr. Kaltefleiter continues to work with grassroots activist groups to address food scarcity, poverty, and inequality. She has provided spaces where her students feel comfortable and empowered to have difficult conversations and learn about people from several backgrounds. Her curriculum pushes students to think beyond themselves.
Caroline Kaltefleiter is professor of communication studies and women’s studies as well as a founding member of the Anarchist Studies Initiative (ASI) at the State University of New York, Cortland. She has written numerous articles and conference papers on anarchist studies, do-it-yourself culture and the riot grrrl movement. Recent works include: “Anarchy Grrrl Style Now: Riot Grrrl Actions and Practices,” “Riot Grrrls and Bois: Gender Contestation in (Trans) Zines and Performance Sites of Resistance”; and “Juno and Diablo: Cinematic Riot Grrrls and the Cultivation of a Liberated Girlhood.” Kaltefleiter calls herself an activist first then an academic. She was a member of the Riot Grrrl Washington DC chapter and remains committed to Riot Grrrl through zines and correspondence. Her current research interests include youth culture capitalism, post-feminism, and popular culture. She is currently finishing a forthcoming academic text nearly two decades in the making on the Riot Grrrl movement, that privileges an inside/out perspective.
