LLAKES Public Seminar – Ann Edwards
Common Knowledge at Sites of Intersecting Practices: the Limitations of Know-Who in Preventing Social Exclusion
Speaker: Professor Anne Edwards, Director, Department of Education, University of Oxford
Discussant: Professor Allison Fuller, University of Southampton
Chair: Dr David Guile, Institute of Education
Anne will discuss her recent work on the ‘relational turn’ in expertise, outlining notions of relational agency, relational expertise and the mediating role of common knowledge in working across practice boundaries in children’s services. Her research uses a cultural /historical approach to connect knowledge with motives in identifying what matters for practitioners. In the seminar she will focus on the dangers of ignoring knowledge in school practices aimed at preventing the social exclusion of vulnerable young people.
