Garlen’s research interests include topics of childhood, early childhood education, popular culture and cultural curriculum studies.

Her interest in the ways cultural discourses shape the lives of children through ideologies of race, class, gender and sexuality informs her current work in critical childhood studies. This work includes research into how the myth of childhood innocence has informed work with children in the United States and Canada – such as how adult investments in childhood innocence work against processes of truth and reconciliation in early childhood care and education in settler colonial contexts.
