Dr Marta Moskal
- Senior Lecturer (Culture, Literacies, Inclusion & Pedagogy)
Marta Moskal has an interdisciplinary background in human geography, sociology and public policy. Her current research focuses on the processes of international mobility and education from the perspective of culture, social inclusion and change. She is interested in the emerging issue of decolonisation in education in the global context of power relations and inclusion within and across contexts. While researching international students from the Global South, Eastern European migrant children and youth and refugee young people, she is particularly interested in the question of who is marginalised and disadvantaged in education structures. She believes this question is critical in addressing social inequalities on local and global scales. She has been principal investigator and co-investigator on a number of projects such as the AHRC Global Challenges (2019) on an intercultural pedagogy for higher education in conditions of conflict and protracted crises (co-I); ESRC (2016-19) on identity, belonging and citizenship of migrant youth in the UK (co-I); ESRC IAA (2016-17) on race equality and Scottish school education (co-PI): the British Academy (2014-15) on international students mobility and capacity building in their home countries (PI) and EC Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship (2008-10) on migration, integration and education of Polish migrants families.
Prior to her position at Glasgow, she has been an Assistant Professor at Durham University, School of Education. She has also held a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellowship at Glasgow, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellowship at the Centre of Educational Sociology at Edinburgh, and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at Edinburgh. She has worked as an Assistant Professor in Social and Political Geography at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków where she has received her PhD.
