Working with theory in social research

PANEL DISCUSSION: THE JOURNEY TO THEORY

In this panel discussion, three early career researchers, working with different theoretical orientations, will share their own ‘journey to theory’: how they came to – and began working with – theory, and what their theoretical orientation brings to their work, both at PhD level and beyond.

  • Speakers: Remy Low has been a secondary social science teacher, a lecturer and tutor in gender and cultural studies, and the academic advisor for the Mount Druitt University Hub project for widening participation in higher education. He completed his PhD in the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney in 2013 on the interaction between economic, cultural and educational policies in the debate over religious schooling in Australia. Dr Lowe's research interests centre on issues of identity and diversity in educational and cultural institutions. He is also interested in academic and professional mentoring, as well as discursive, psychosocial, fictional and narrative approaches to educational research.

    Victoria Rawlings teaches in the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, lecturing and tutoring students about gender, sexuality, pedagogy and research methods. Her doctorate (Sydney, 2013) investigated the impact of gender and sexuality on school violence, policy and social structures in high schools. After her postgraduate study, Dr Rawlings moved to the UK for two years, where she worked on a national project investigating LGBTQ youth self-harm and suicide. She has a new book: Gender regulation, violence and social hierarchies in school: ‘Sluts’, ‘Gays’ and ‘Scrubs’.

    Debra Talbot is a lecturer at the Sydney School of Education and Social Work, where she is also co-director of Professional Experience. She has worked as a classroom teacher for more than 20 years, as well as head of department in the government and independent sectors and professional learning consultant. Her areas of research interest are teacher education, teacher professional learning, social justice, curriculum and pedagogy, particularly in relation to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education.
