Dr Eugenia Katartzi is an Assistant Professor in Education.
Prior to joining the University of Nottingham, she has held teaching and research positions at the Universities of Edinburgh, Leeds, Bath, Huddersfield and Chester.
I have a multidisciplinary expertise in the study of education, childhood and youth. My research interests are located at psychosocial study of children's and young people's identities and educational trajectories, as these are shaped by ethnic, classed and gendered inequalities.
Also,I have worked for major European and national research projects in Scotland, England and Greece in the areas of intercultural education and migration, European education policy, and Higher Education transitions.
My work has empirically documented and theorised migrant and ethnic majority young people's ethnonational identities and sense of belonging. Another strand of my work has focussed on educational inequalities in the post-compulsory, Vocational and Higher Education sectors, drawing upon the work of Bourdieu and Bernstein.
My current and future work takes an interdisciplinary approach to unpacking the impact of displacement on children's and young people's intersecting identities and outcomes.
