Leading the field

We're home to a number of internationally recognised education experts, and at the cutting edge of teaching and research. Research in this field is carried out at The Social Transformations and Education (STE) Hub – a centre that addresses questions about educational purposes, policies and practices in light of social transformations. The research undertaken here explores new formations of knowledge, identities, social relations and cultural diversity, and how these are shaping and are shaped by education.
