Current Research

I am currently working on a three year Leverhulme funded research project to assess the personal and community impact of the municipalisation of Cuban higher education that occurred in the first decade of the 21st century.

Past Research

My PhD thesis, published as a monograph by Palgrave Macmillan in July 2016, investigated the methods used in Cuban education to develop and engage young people ideologically and in terms of their citizen behaviours. It included in-depth studies of school textbooks for civic education and Cuban history, along with an analysis of the emergente programmes, which sought to re-engage many thousands of young people by training them as teachers, social workers, art instructors, etc.
