The Research in Critical Education Studies (RiCES) group works to promote the development of rigorous, critical and socially engaged research for education. We concentrate on understanding how educational practices, institutions and phenomena are related to the reproduction of social inequalities and injustices – and how they contribute to challenging and overcoming them. Our members have a special interest in bringing critical theory, social research and educational practice to bear on one another in the creation of really useful knowledge for teachers, students, theorists, activists, educational policymakers and all those passionate about knowledge, learning and educational and social justice.

We welcome contact from anyone inside or outside the academy who shares a common interest in this work.
