Charlotte’s research is in the field of social justice in education with a particular focus on race (in)equality and on the way in which different kinds of inequalities are produced and reproduced in educational spaces and by educational processes, practices and discourses.
Her work focuses both on areas of formal education, in particular secondary, vocational and higher education, as well as informal learning spaces such as volunteering, and non-formal learning such as public and cultural pedagogies. She is particularly interested in the ways in which subjectivities are formed and shaped through different kinds of formal and non-formal pedagogies.
Her research has been funded by the Aldgate and Allhallows Foundation, Hackney Council, the Skills Funding Agency and the Greater London Authority. Her recent book, ‘Judith Butler, Race and Education’ was published in 2018 by Palgrave Macmillan.
