Research interests

Contemporary cultural practices, social arts and arts education, environmental sustainability, and public and informal pedagogies.

I am particularly interested in the pedagogical affordances of making and witnessing arts and culture, the relationships (human and non-human) inherent in every learning engagement, and a perspective on those engagements that accounts for affect as well as representation. To this end I am deeply engaged in theories and methods of qualitative and post-qualitative research and in human-environment relations and socio-ecological sustainability.

I lead the MSc in Teaching Adults and teach across the subject area of Community Learning and Development, Adult Education, and Life-Long Learning. In addition I teach in Initial Teacher Education in the area of family and community engagement. From a background that spans many locations and professional contexts, I work internationally with close collaborators in North America, and Africa, as well as across the UK and Ireland.
