Helen Gunter

With speaker Professor Helen Gunter, from the University of Manchester

I have been working on intellectual histories of, for and about the field of Educational Leadership (Administration? Management? Entrepreneurship?) for over thirty years, and in this paper I will share my work and thinking about methodological and conceptual matters. Notably I will consider the relationship between knowledge production and the relationship with historical study of people, organisations and policy matters.

This seminar will take place Via Zoom. The link will be sent to all those who have registered closer to the date.
