Education

Our research concerns education as a discipline and it is the location of theoretical-analytical educational programs in education. The Section’s research is characterised by theoretical studies and empirically rooted analyses of education in its practical, institutional, professional and scientific forms.

The strength of the research is its contribution to societal and scientific conversations about the role and status of education in a tension field of the humanities and the social sciences. The Section has close collaborations with external partners, especially the University Colleges and their teacher and social educator training programs.

The section’s research evolves theory about the implications and conditions of education by means of analysing current and historical educational programs and concepts, didactic relations, educational practice and interactions, and structural relations in education. The analyses and interpretations conceptualises education in relation to social, cultural, economic and political processes and are thus critical studies of education.
