Ian Munday is Lecturer in Education and teaches on the Initial Teacher Educatio, MRes and Doctoral School programmes. He has a PhD from the UCL Institute of Education in Philosophy of Education. Prior to joining the University in 2010 he was Teaching Associate in the Philosophy of Education at the University of Cambridge where he taught a range of modules on BA and MA Education programmes and co-ordinated the Professional Studies Course on the Secondary PGCE
Ian’s research activities and output testify to an engagement with philosophical issues in education, particularly those concerning teaching and learning. His publications have tended to focus on various approaches to performatives and performativities, and demonstrate the significance of these ideas for education. The themes explored in these terms include race, gender, the construction of authority, power relationships and the language of schooling. Here, philosophical ideas are treated in regards to their relevance to the details of educational practice. Ian’s most recent research focuses on theorising “creativity” in education.
