Marlon Moncrieffe, Dr

University of Brighton

Dr Marlon Moncrieffe offers expertise in teaching and learning through theories of critical multicultural education. He taught in Primary Schools from 1999 to 2013 and was a Head of Mathematics, Head of English and Deputy-Headteacher leading on curriculum, monitoring, and assessment.  His continuing research on curriculum development advances Initial Teacher Training and Primary School education through the use of narrative inquiry as a method for teaching and learning on Race Equality. He focuses particularly on the application of 20th century Black-British history and its cross-cultural interaction with White-Britain for helping to advance education, teaching and learning about fundamental British Values (civic national values) and for ‘Decolonising the Curriculum’. He takes an interdisciplinary approach to  research through education, history, sociology, arts and humanities. Moncrieffe is leader in the field on research into the history of minority-ethnic group participation in competitive cycling in Britain. His groundbreaking race education work entitled ‘Made in Britain: Uncovering the life-histories of Black-British Champions in Cycling’ has won wide acclaim for illuminating issues of racial inequality, mono-ethnic representation and the need for broader inclusion and diversity.
