The Research Centre on Higher Education, Development and Capabilities recently hosted two international visitors, Prof. Marie Brennan and Dr Lew Zipin from Victoria University in Australia. They discussed future visits and research collaboration with Prof. Melanie Walker, Professor of Higher Education and Human Development. They presented a well-attended research seminar on ‘Educating for futures in marginalized regions: a sociological framework for rethinking and researching aspirations’.

Prof. Brennan and Dr Zipin have been involved in researching education for social justice in teacher education and higher education in Australia for many years. Most recently, they have been researchers on prestigious Australian Research Council projects. These include: (i) Capacitating Student Aspirations in Classrooms and Communities in a High Poverty Region, 2012-2014; and (ii) Pursuing equity in high poverty rural schools: improving learning through rich accountabilities, 2010-2012. They recently co-edited Re-positioning University Governance and Academic Work that was published by Sense Publications in 2010.
