Second Year, Full-time
Place, space and possible selves in the experiences of final year college-based HE students in Engand.
My research uses the context of undergraduate degrees taught in Further Education colleges in Engand to explore the role of place, space and imagined futures in educational subjectivities. I am working to bring together different theorisations of time and place in education, in order to think through the structural inequalities of English Higher Education, and the impact of these inequalities on how students see themselves.
