What is the future for subject-based education research?

This seminar will provide an assessment of the development of research in subject-based education, and of its future prospects. Using geography education as an exemplar, it will offer a challenging critique of this field of research. Importantly, in a period of radical change for all education research and researchers, the seminar represents a timely appraisal of possible ways forward for subject research in the field.
The intention is to help us further understand the unsteady, sporadic and increasingly insecure development of subject-based education research. However, despite the obvious challenges, the aim is to outline realistic ways forward for geography education, and other subject-based, researchers.
