Our faculty complement of nearly 25 members pursue research and teaching through a range of approaches. Our programs are organized through a shared framework that uses fundamental educational problems as its starting point. Our faculty have taken the lead in expanding the conventional boundaries of the fields of humanities and social sciences in education beyond all social influences on schooling. They examine themes such as the social organization of knowledge, the pedagogical effects of state forms and practices, and the comparative influences of international capitalism on access to educational development.
