Teaching and Learning in the Humanities

About this group

The research group Teaching and Learning in the Humanities applies an educational perspective to the humanities, and a humanistic perspective to education. The group includes researchers from the subjects English, History, Literary Studies, Rhetoric, and the Swedish Language. Within the group various research methods and perspectives are applied, e.g., close-to-practice research, comparative didactic research, policy research, and research with a historical perspective. Thematically, the research concerns aspects such as power and identity, stereotyping and minority issues, multilingualism, reading and writing development, as well as the democracy mission of schools. The group collaborates actively with various social actors and has a mutual exchange with researchers from other subjects, both locally and globally.
