Durham U: International & Comparative Education (UK)

“Job

Assistant Professor in International & Comparative Education, School of Education, Durham University, Durham, UK. Deadline: 12 February 2021.

The School of Education at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Assistant Professor in International and Comparative Education. Most welcome are applications from those with research and teaching interests that are aligned with the International and Comparative Education research cluster within the School.

Research in this cluster draws together the expertise from the extensive and varied international dimensions of educational research from across the department. The cluster centres on multidisciplinary, international and intercultural research which positions educational issues in an international and comparative framework. The cluster engages with methodological, epistemological and theoretical projects which advance understandings of educational issues through international and comparative lenses. Social, spatial and linguistic inequalities are central to the synergies of this group, including explorations around relational educational inequalities between the ‘Global North and Global South’.

Researchers collaborating in this cluster recognise the multiplicity of individuals’ languages, cultures, identities, histories. The collaborations in the cluster foreground youth participation, engagement and responsibility for social justice, both locally and globally. A broad range of projects across the department involve international and comparative methodologies with sites of exploration and collaboration including China, South Africa, Jordan, Brazil, Columbia, Mexico, Turkey, Australia and many contexts across Europe.

The researchers in the cluster draw on a range of perspectives in international education and comparative methodologies. This includes large scale national and international comparisons as well as research that foregrounds socially constructed, dialogic, experiential and reflexive approaches to research and learning, and approaches that give voice to people from marginalised communities, particularly around experiences of migration and mobility. Intercultural education and the role of language, culture, identity and belonging are an integral part of the cluster.
