Julia is Principal Investigator on EdJAM and a Professor in Education, Peace and Conflict in the School of Education at the University of Bristol.
She led the GW4 Transformative History Education project that provided the opportunity to build the relationships upon which EdJAM is based and to support civil society partners to develop new approaches for teaching and learning about the violent past. Julia is interested in education as a site of memory production and in educational policies and pedagogies that might contribute towards more just futures by understanding and seeking to repair past injustices. She is also interested in knowledge production and the ethics of collaborative, international research. Julia is also a Co-Investigator on the JustED project, investigating education and environmental, epistemic and transitional justice in secondary schooling in Nepal, Peru and Uganda and the MEMPAZ project, which supports creative memory making with marginalised groups in Colombia.
