Researching Education and Social Justice

March 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm GMT

Exploring the limits and possibilities for institutional change

Hosted by the Centre for Identities and Social Justice

Convenor: Dr Sarah Pearce, Goldsmiths, University of London

Event Summary

This event showcases the research of four students who graduated from the MA Education: Culture Language and Identity programme at Goldsmiths in 2020. Between them, the four presentations explore how racialised, classed and gendered thinking still excludes and marginalises at all levels of formal education, from early years classrooms to university. They also offer practical suggestions for institutional change. Their work epitomises the engagement, criticality and activism of the best Master’s level research.

Addressing the ‘Vocabulary Gap’ in a Key Stage 2 Classroom, Simon Codling

Neoliberalism and education: school exclusion reform and the politics of disposability, Jacqueline Krause

Advocating for Black and ethically marginalised parents, whilst Black, Jaki Glen

Black postgraduate students’ perceptions of race and class and the impact on their educational experiences, Mira Wille

The MA Education: culture language and identity explores teaching and learning from a socio-cultural perspective and attracts students with a strong concern for social justice.

The event will be of interest to anyone who cares about current issues in education, as well as those who are themselves undertaking Master’s level study. We hope that questions and discussion will include attention to methods and methodologies as well as findings.

*This event will be held online via Zoom. A link will be sent out to registered attendees near the time of the event.
