ANNA STETSENKO is a Full Professor in the PhD Program in Psychology, with joint appointment in the PhD Program in Urban Education at The Graduate Center CUNY. Her research is situated at the intersection of human development, social theory, and education, including topics of subjectivity, collective agency, and personhood viewed through the lens of social change. Prior to working in the United States, she worked at universities and research centers in Russia, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. She has published in English, Russian, Italian, and German. Her theory has been characterized “as exemplifying major currents in developmental theorizing about agency” (Sugarman & Sokol, New Ideas in Psychology, 2012) and a recent chapter as among “the most provocative and probing essays you will ever read on the nature of human personhood” (Dan McAdams, The Psychology of Personhood, 2013).
