Dina researches and teaches critical Higher Education Studies. A primary interest in her work are the conditions for the development of critical consciousness in those who represent and commemorate knowledge and knowing, particularly academics and artists, in contemporary ‘post’-colonial times. She has been fortunate to collaborate on and supervise both academic practice and scholarship in contexts across the majority world; and to act in advisory, review and editorial roles for journals, book publishers, networks, funders, civil society organisations and policymakers. Within the UK, she has served on the External Advisory Group for EDI for UKRI; the Governing Council of the Society of Research in Higher Education (SRHE), for the Centre for Global Education and the Migrant and Minority Ethnic Think Tank of Northern Ireland. Dina is a Reader at the School of Social Science, Education and Social Work (SSESW) at Queen’s University Belfast, and is affiliated to Nelson Mandela University.
