Laura teaches across programmes in the Educational Studies Department including BA Education, Culture and Society, the Primary PGCE and the Doctoral Research Training course.
Her current research focuses on pedagogy, counter politics and subjectivities. She draws on a range of poststructuralist and psychoanalytic perspectives to theorise the micro politics of classroom practice; exploring the possibility of everyday pedagogic interventions to disrupt the normative discourses and practices perpetuating educational inequalities.
She has a longstanding interest in praxis in educational settings. The relationship between her theoretical writing and her teaching practice is iterative and she explores methodological approaches to capture and inform this process. Laura has been involved in ESRC research projects investigating how to address sexuality equality in primary schooling and on the impact of postgraduate educational research.
