Mr Daniel Leyton Atenas

  • Research Associate in Gender, Higher Education and Employment (School of Education)

Biography

I am a political sociologist of education, with a PhD in Education from the University of Sussex, and Master of Arts in Sociological Research from the University of Essex. Previously, I was Lecturer at the Department of Education Policy at Universidad Alberto Hurtado, Chile.

I am currently Research Associate in Gender, Higher Education and Employment in a ESRC-funded project entitled Gendered Journeys: The Trajectories of STEM students through Higher Education and Into Employment, in India and Rwanda. I am the PI of a 3-year FONDECYT-funded project (The National Fund for Scientific and Technological Development granted by the Chilean Ministry of Science) entitled 'Biopolitics, Subjectivity and Professionalism. A study on Neurosciences' forms of Government and Regime of Subjectification in the Field of Educational Professions' 

Research interests

My research interests are focused on class, gender, racial and epistemic inequalities and power in higher education, especially in the fields of internationalisation, widening participation and affirmative action policies, and academic professions. I work through theories of power and subjectivities and sociologies of knowledge and sciences. 

I have particular interests in the following topics:

  • Critical Higher Education Studies
  • Education Policy
  • Migrant Academics in the Global Higher Education
  • Professional Subjectivites in Higher Education
  • Gender, Race and Class Intersectionalities in Higher Education
  • Comparative and International Education
  • Research Cultures
  • Affirmative Action Policies
