Research Interests

I explore spectatorship and the culturally-inscripted body within our ever-growing world of fluid borders and hybrid identities with a focus on inclusive education.  While critiquing text centred educative strategies I strives to cultivate dynamic and imaginative spaces whereby the body at play, including all abilities and challenges, becomes the most critical tool for transformative learning across all subject areas. I move education onto a horizontal plane of exchange and empathy rather than a vertical plane of transmission. The reciprocal nature of this approach allows for vibrant explorations with self invested learners who become connected to and responsible for their immediate, local and global community.
