Dr Katarzyna Borkowska

  • Lecturer in Education (School of Interdisciplinary Studies)

Biography

I joined the School of Interdisciplinary Studies as a Lecturer in Education in January 2017. Previously, I have worked as an Associate Tutor in the School of Education, University of Glasgow. Originally from Poland, I completed both the Ph.D. (2009- 2013) and MEd (2006- 2007) degrees at the University of Glasgow.


Research interests

My research interests are in the areas of gender issues, social equality and inclusion. The focus of my research is on personal and collective identities as well as representations of gender on social networking platforms. More recently, I have become interested in examining the social and political implications of implementing smart technologies in urban contexts.

Supervision

I welcome inquiries and applications from potential PhD students who share any of my research interests, especially related to:

  • gender issues in education
  • constructions of gendered identities
  • research on masculinities
  • research incorporating the use of social networking websites
  • social inequalities and social justice (in particular in relation to children and young people)

Teaching

My pedagogical philosophy is based on a belief that teaching has to be student-centred and relate to students’ personal experiences. My aim is to help students to become independent and critical thinkers. I believe that encouraging people to reflect critically on theory, research, policy and practice can generate a positive social change and lead to achieving greater social equality. I have experience as a course leader for a number of postgraduate and undergraduate courses.
