David Cudworth, Dr

De Montfort University

Dave Cudworth is associate professor and the head of the division of education at De Montfort University, Leicester. Prior to his move into academia he was a primary school teacher. His research focusses on primary education, educational social justice, alternative education and Forest School. His forthcoming book, Schooling and Travelling Communities: Exploring the Spaces of Educational Exclusion (Palgrave Macmillan, July 2018), uses spatial theory to develop the concept of a ‘spatial analytic’, through which the experiences of travelling communities are not simply constituted by social relations, but are dynamically reformed through school processes and resistances.
