Globalisation, Education & Social Futures (GESF)


Globalisation, Education & Social Futures (GESF) is a research network bringing together colleagues based in the universities of Bristol, Cambridge and Lancaster in the United Kingdom.

We engage in research that seeks to analyse the dynamic spatial, temporal and social interrelations between educational processes and societies, and the role of education in transmitting ontologically situated knowledges. By studying the dynamics of globalisation, regionalisation, socio-technical developments, new identities, and spatial and temporal change, we will address frequently neglected questions surrounding politics, economics, cultures and futures in education.
