Research Publications

There is a mix of research noted below, which reflects my journey from eighteenth-century political historian [my PhD was on the relationship between the politicians and the electorate in eighteenth-century Yorkshire. It will be uploaded here at some point], to educational researcher looking at Sure Start provision on the Effective Early Learning project in the West Midlands, to HE project Manager investigating the use of nascent web sources in humanities’ curricula, to my current role leading technology-in-education.

The things that tie my research together are alternatives, politics/governance, communities/networks, technology/education, and struggle/activism. These come through my research and underpin my role as a Professor of Education and Technology.
