News and Events

As part of the Graduate School of Education Research Seminar Series, the Centre will be hosting Professor Carol Taylor (Sheffield Hallam University) on Tuesday 21 November.  See event details below.   

These meetings are for CenCSE doctoral students to discuss research issues with each other and CenCSE staff.  The group meets once per term.

If you are interested in joining this doctoral discussion group please contact Hermione Ruck Keene (H.RuckKeene@exeter.ac.uk )

CenCSE currently hosts one reading group, The Post-structural Reading Group (PSRG) which meets on a monthly basis to discuss a relevant research paper selected in advance by the group. The group has met on a monthly basis since 2008 and is comprised of staff and doctoral students. Its meetings are open to anyone with an interest in the application of post-structural theoretical approaches to educational research.  Post-structural theories intersect with some of CenCSE’s interests owing to the open-ended and emergentist nature of this perspective.

If you are interested in joining this reading grou‌p please contact Jonathan Doney.

Visiting Scholar

CenCSE is very pleased to welcome Maria Falkembach as a Visiting Scholar for the next six months.

She is undertaking a PhD in Education, at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil and is spending her time in the UK working with Dr Kerry Chappell as her overseas supervisor.

Her research is about dance teaching in the formal education system, dance as art subject in the compulsory curriculum in the primary school, in Brazil. The investigation seeks to problematize dance teachers’ practice at schools to contribute to its improvement. Maria works with Foucault's theories, Performance Studies and Rudolf Laban studies.

Seminar by Professor Carol Taylor (Sheffield Hallam University) Posthumanist/ new material feminist imaginaries for higher education research and pedagogy

Posthumanism is a mobile term, a constellation of theories, concepts, approaches and practices which share an interest in destabilizing binaries, decentering the human, and forging new ways of doing and thinking ethics in relation. Posthumanism has been seen as both a ‘reaction’ to Humanism (Wolfe, 2010) and a recognition that the current era of the Anthropocene is having a destructive impact on the planet and its inhabitants. It is for these reasons that Rosi Braidotti (2013: 2) suggests that the post-human condition has introduced a ‘qualitative shift’ in our thinking about what ‘the basic unit of common reference is for our species, our polity and our relationships’, that Karen Barad (2007: 142) urges attention to ethico-onto-epistemological understandings of how matter comes to matter in more-than-human entanglements, and Donna Haraway (2016) argues for a speculative feminist practice of ‘making kin’ through relational acts of string-figuring..
