The focus of this Research and Teaching Group (RTG) is the intersection between culture, literacies, inclusion and pedagogy

Key themes

  • Intercultural education and the place of cultural identity, linguistic diversity and arts-based practices
  • Literacies, including visual and digital literacies as well as language-informed pedagogies
  • Inclusion in education and wider society, especially for marginalised, vulnerable and disadvantaged groups
  • The development of effective and collaborative models of pedagogy, including high quality assessment to support learning
  • Children’s literature including critical literary analysis and empirical study of its social use
  • English language education for speakers of other languages
  • Science and mathematics education and public understanding of science


This RTG is also the home of the Assessment Research Network (Prof Louise Hayward) and the UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts (Prof Alison Phipps)
