Biography

I am Reader in Education & Public Policy at the University of Glasgow. Previously I have worked as an academic at a number of institutions, including King’s College, London, University of Stirling and University College Dublin. I am an active researcher in the fields of education and public policy, with current research interests including:

 

  • Accountability, bureaucracy and the politics of public sector reform
  • Governance and management of education systems/profession
  • Sociology of education/social theory in applied settings
  • Relationship between theory and research methods
  • EU social policy

 

I have published widely, with numerous articles in journals such as the Journal of Education Policy, Journal of European Public Policy, Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, International Journal of Lifelong Education and the British Journal of Sociology of Education. Recent books include Habermas and social research: between theory and method (Due in November, 2016, Routledge), Habermas, critical theory and education (with T. Fleming, Routledge, 2012), 4-volume Social theory and education research (Sage, 2013), Social theory and education research: understanding Foucault, Habermas, Bourdieu and Derrida (Routledge, April 2013), and Research and Education (with W. Curtis and S. Shields, Routledge, 2014). Forthcoming books include Bourdieu, habitus and social research: The art of application (wth C. Costa, Palgrave, 2015) and Theory as method: On Bourdieu, education and society. (with C. Costa, Routledge, 2015). 

I have completed a range of research projects in education, including studies on widening access to higher education, the higher education student experience, leadership and management in higher education and the impact of accountability mechanisms on front-line services. I am currently Principal Investigator on two funded projects – one exploring partnership-based initiatives in reducing school exclusions, and the other researching the impact of for-profit providers in Scottish higher education.

Alongside these publication and research activities, I play an active role in the academic community. In the recent past I have been the Chair of the British Education Studies Association (BESA) and am an active member of other professional associations such as the British Education Research Association (BERA) and the Social Policy Association (SPA). I have been an invited keynote speaker at various conferences, serve on Journal Editorial Boards, am a regular peer reviewer for journals and book publishers, and have acted as an external examiner at a range of institutions, nationally and internationally.

I have a strong commitment to the use of social media in social research, as evidenced in my various contributions to education websites, including my role as creator of www.socialtheoryapplied.com.
