Sarah Amsler

Sarah Amsler is a politically engaged educator and researcher who works at the transdisciplinary crossings of sociology, education, feminist and critical theory, radical pedagogy and social justice, with special interest in learning at the limits of the possible and with the ‘otherwise’. Currently, her research and pedagogical work focus on the politics of knowledge and ontological pedagogies in systemic thinking and change, horizons of possibility and mobilisations of hope, and problems of coloniality in educational practices. Over twenty-five years, she has taught and facilitated critical learning experiences in a variety of contexts including autonomous education, cooperative education, early years and primary schools, higher education, museums, nongovernmental organisations, teacher education, popular education and transnational educational initiatives in ecological and social justice. She is a member of the international Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures collective and Critical Internationalization Studies Network, both based at the University of British Columbia (CA), and the Women on the Verge writing collective, based at the University of Bath (UK). Sarah is currently Associate Professor of Education at the University of Nottingham, UK. She holds a PhD in Sociology from the London School of Economics and Political Science (UK, 2005), an MA in Sociology from George Mason University (US, 1998) and a BSc in Education from the University of Delaware (US, 1994).
