Melissa Jogie

Melissa’s research focuses on education and social justice, drawing from philosophy, sociology, psychology, and literature. She held a Visiting Fellowship at the University of Oxford’s Centre for Comparative and International Education (2015) and completed her PhD on comparative education systems at the Australian National University (2017). Melissa’s research proposes a meta-theory of social activism which overarches her forthcoming works on fairness, critical race theory, digital technologies, and postcolonial pedagogy. These theoretical insights have led to recent British Academy awards (2019-2020), a Research England strategic priorities grant (2020), and a cross-institutional knowledge exchange activity funded by the Cathedrals Group (2020). Melissa is currently the Director for Advance HE’s Diversifying Leadership Programme which aims to promote a leadership mindset for BAME academic and professional staff across UK Higher Education institutions. In 2021 she was elected to University Senate to serve as an Academic Representative at the University of Roehampton. Melissa is also enthusiastic about research-led teaching. In 2020 she was shortlisted for a university-wide Academic Lecturer of the Year award by the Roehampton Students’ Union (RSU) and she remains Student Success Coordinator for the Education Studies Programme at the School of Education.
