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.
