PLACE has a wide range of expertise in a diverse yet overlapping set of disciplines within or aligned to education. This includes research and teaching related to modern (and second) language learning; literacy with particular reference to the primary school and early years education; literary studies including children’s literature; arts education with a focus on music, art, drama and creativity; geography, history, English, classics and religious studies in primary and secondary education.

In their teaching and research, members of the group are concerned, to varying degrees, with epistemological, socio-cultural and philosophical aspects of these subjects as well as their bearing on pedagogical issues. Our membership has a strong commitment to the development of secondary and primary learning and teaching.
