Biography

I am a Professor of Educational Research, and Director of the Centre for Public Education and Pedagogy, Faculty of Social Sciences at Maynooth University, since November 2017. My previous positions include a Baltic Sea Foundation Professor of Education at Södertörn University, Sweden between 2013-2017 and a position as Professor of Education and a period as Dean of Education at Mälardalen University, Sweden 2005-2013. Since my Ph.D. in 1994 from Uppsala University, I was affiliated with Uppsala University as a Lecturer and later as a Senior Lecturer. I was also part of senior management of Teacher Education, and program director for the Centre for Didactics. At Mälardalen University I was a member of the senior management group and the Director of Didactica Academia, a joint project between Örebro University and Mälardalen University supporting research development in the area. I was the Director of a productive research group, SIDES for ten years between 2003-2013, which had members from three universities and member of international research networks in the philosophy of education as well as concerning teaching and learning and curriculum theory. I have also been the Director of a Ph.D. research school on Philosophical Studies of Educational Relations, funded by the Swedish Research Agency between 2011-2017. I was the President for Nordic Educational Research Association (NERA) 2013-2016 and a board member since 2010, with 700 members across the Nordic countries. I served as Visiting Professor at The Laboratory for Educational Theory, University of Stirling 2009-2012. My research interests include educational philosophy and theory, educational policy focusing on the relations between democracy, public education, and school for all. Mainly my interests are in the politics of emancipation, the ethics of responsibility and the aesthetics of freedom. I am deeply engaged in social justice issues concerning education. I publish extensively in scientific journals, writes academic books and contribute to anthologies and are regularly invited internationally to give talks and keynotes in my areas of expertise.
