Sophie’s research and teaching interests centre on questions of educational justice and equity. Her work seeks to understand political struggles (historically and presently) over educational provision, curriculum, pedagogy and identity.
As a non-Indigenous Australian, Sophie Rudolph has had a long-standing interest in exploring issues of social justice, diversity and equity in education and, in particular, the impact that colonial history has on present day inequalities in Australia. These interests frame her teaching and research practices. Her research includes sociological and historical examinations of education and investigates issues of curriculum, pedagogy and politics in education, policy and practice. Her work is informed by critical and post-structuralist theories and aims to offer opportunities for working towards social change.
