Research Networks are flexible groupings of academic staff who are interested in, excited by or wish to explore the development of a research topic which crosses the natural boundaries of existing Research Centres.
Network activities may be locally, nationally or internationally-based and include reading groups, seminar series, generating research proposals and publications.
Artful Narrative Inquiry Network (ANI-NET)
The Artful Narrative Inquiry Network aims to re-think the challenges of 21st century inquiry and develop multi-voiced forms of research, representation and dissemination. It seeks to develop creative and artistic means of illuminating intimate, hard to untangle and under-researched fields of study.
China Educational Research Network (CERN)
The China Educational Research Network brings together colleagues who are conducting research in China, a region that has strategic significance for the Graduate School of Education. We aim to develop and facilitate cutting edge research related to educational policy and practice in China and East Asia.
Globalisation, Education and Social Futures (GESF)
GESF is a research network bringing together colleagues based in the universities of Bristol, Cambridge and Lancaster in the United Kingdom. We engage in research that seeks to analyse the dynamic spatial, temporal and social interrelations between educational processes and societies, and the role of education in transmitting ontologically situated knowledges.
Inclusive and Special Education Network (ISEN)
The Inclusive and Special Education Network aims to provide a hub for research and teaching activities related to the inclusion, participation and engagement of all learners across education phases and settings.
Linguistnet research network
Linguistnet is a network for Applied Linguistics and related fields. We envision our network as essentially interdisciplinary in encompassing our research on language and globalisation, societies, identities, pragmatics, acquisition, assessment policy and Sign Linguistics. Linguistnet aims to provide an intellectual forum for staff and students’ research through the organization of seminars, workshops and reading groups which build and support academic publications in Applied Linguistics as well as conference preparation.
Mathematics Education Research Network (MERN)
The Mathematics Education Research Network provides a unifying grouping for members of the GSoE who work in the area of mathematics education. MERN connects diverse research within mathematics education, with a common focus on learning. Areas of interest include: new technologies, teacher development, assessment, language and multilingualism, classroom culture and algebra.
Network for Mind and Brain in Educational and Social Contexts (M-BESC)
We are interested in drawing upon, and extending, concepts and techniques from the sciences of mind and brain to transform the understanding and practice of learning in educational and social contexts. Educational contexts include pre-school settings, schools, colleges and institutes of higher education. Social contexts include informal settings and the workplace.
