In this episode of the podcast our host Kyra Araneta is joined by EdD researcher, Maisha Islam, who is also the Doctoral College Research Culture Lead of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at University of Southampton. In this episode, we discuss Maisha’s journey through higher education and her research on the attainment gap and student experiences. We consider how we might begin to rethink academic research as a culture and practice. And towards the end of the episode, we explore the synergies between the practice of partnership with socially-just and liberatory theories.
