She is a sociologist working in the area of education but is also interested in broader issues of the relationship between the self and society, the affective and the material. Her priority has been to engage in research with a strong social justice agenda that addresses social inequalities of all kinds. Professor Diane Reay Centre for Research into Teaching & Teacher Research A series of seminars from major theorists on social justice and education The Centre of Research into Teaching and Teacher Education invites you to join us for a seminar given by Professor Diane Reay, to discuss her latest Book Miseducation: Inequality, education and the working classes, followed by an evening buffet in the Upper Foye. In her latest book, Miseducation: Inequality, education and the working classes, Diane draws on her own working class roots to Cambridge professor, to brings Brian Jackson and Dennis Marsden’s pioneering Education and the Working Class from 1962 up to date for the 21st century. Drawing on over 500 interviews, the book addresses the urgent question of why the working classes are still faring so much worse than the upper and middle classes in education. It reveals how we have ended up with an educational system that still educates the different social classes in fundamentally different ways, and vitally – what we can do to achieve a fairer system.
