Prof Carl Bagley
Prof. Bagley studied for a BSc (Hons) in Sociology and Politics at the University of Bradford before training as a Community Worker at the University of Swansea where he obtained a Diploma in Applied Social Studies and a Certificate of Qualification in Social Work (CQSW). He subsequently worked as a community-based anti-racist strategist for Leeds Local Education Authority where he gained JNC recognition as a qualified youth and community worker. He has held research posts at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) and the Open University (where he obtained his PhD) and previously held a Senior Lectureship at Staffordshire University. He joined the School of Education in 1999. His research interests and publications are in the field of educational sociology. He is particularly interested in educational policy and arts-based approaches to educational research. He is currently working with Dr Sam Hillyard (Applied Social Studies) on an ESRC-funded project exploring the micro-politics of rural schooling, and working with Dr Ricardo Castro-Salazar (Pima College, AZ) investigating the use of performance in tellling the counter-stories of undocumented Americans of Mexican origin in the USA. An example of Professor Bagley's and Dr. Castro-Salazar's arts-based research work can be viewed at www.tinyurl.com/bagley-salazar/performancelong.wmv
He co- edited the book Dancing the Data and its enclosed CD-ROM Dancing the Data Too (with Mary Beth Cancienne, James Madison University, VA); the first arts-based educational research text to incoropoate print and audio-visual material. He co-founded (with Mary Beth Cancienne) the Special Interest Group (SIG) Arts and Inquiry in the Visual and Performing Arts in Education within the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The SIG was the first committed to exclusively providing a live performance space for researcher/artists at AERA’s annual conference. He sits on the board and is the guest editor of a special issue of the journal Ethnography and Education focussing on 'Shifting Methodological Boundaries in Ethnographic Research'. A free download of the editorial can be accessed at: http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/journal.asp?issn=1745-7823&linktype=5
In 2008 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA)
Prof. Bagley teaches on policy studies and qualitative research methods at undergraduate and postgraduate level and supervises doctoral research students in those fields.
He is currently Director of Postgraduate Research with responsibility for the EdD and PhD doctoral programmes in Education.
