Dr Marta Moskal
(email at email@example.com)
Marta Moskal is a sociologist of education with an interdisciplinary background in sociology, human geography, and social policy. Before coming to Durham, Marta was Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellow at Glasgow, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow at the Centre of Educational Sociology at Edinburgh, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at Edinburgh, and an Assistant Professor in Social and Political Geography at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków where she also received her PhD.
Marta’s research focuses on the processes of international mobility and education from the perspective of culture, identity change and social inclusion. She is interested in the emerging issue of decolonisation in education in the global context of power relations and inclusion within and across contexts. While researching international students from the Global South, Eastern European migrant children and youth and refugee young people, she is particularly interested in the question of who is marginalised and disadvantaged in education structures. She believes this question is critical in addressing social inequalities on local and global scales. She has been principal investigator and co-investigator on a number of projects such as the AHRC Global Challenges (2019) on an intercultural pedagogy for higher education in conditions of conflict and protracted crises (co-I); ESRC (2016-19) on identity, belonging and citizenship of migrant youth in the UK (co-I); ESRC IAA (2016-17) on race equality and Scottish school education (co-PI): the British Academy (2014-15) on international students mobility and capacity building in their home countries (PI) and EC MarieSkłodowska-Curie fellowship (2008-10) on migration, integration and education of Polish migrants families.
At Durham, Marta convenes the MA in Intercultural and International Education, she teaches postgraduate Intercultural Communication, International Development and Education in a Global World and undergraduate Education in a Global Age modules. She also coordinates study abroad and international exchange at the department.
She welcomes enquiries about supervision from students who want to write an undergraduate, masters or doctoral dissertation in any area of her research interests, or who are keen to use qualitative and mixed research methods.
