Welcome/About Us

Globalisation, Education & Social Futures (GESF) is a research network bringing together colleagues based in the universities of Cambridge, Bristol and Lancaster in the United Kingdom.

We engage in research that seeks to analyse the dynamic spatial, temporal and social interrelations between educational processes and societies. By studying the dynamics of globalisation, regionalisation, socio-technical developments, new identities, and spatial and temporal change, we will address frequently neglected questions surrounding politics, economics, cultures and futures in education.

We are particularly concerned with questions around anticipatory representations of education, and how we might strive to bring about more socially-just futures.
