About the Author

I have done historical/conceptual work in social studies as well as some analysis of my own practice as a social studies teacher educator, both of these with a particular eye toward issues of anti-racist education. I have recently completed a number of publications reflecting these broad research interests. A natural outgrowth of both the conceptual and field studies has been on the need for a more adequate framework for curriculum history and curriculum development (including that for teacher education) to reflect the diverse segment of American education. I have recently published on participatory action research and worked to facilitate understanding of diversity among pre-service teachers through social and community inquiry assignments. Bridget Somekh is based at Manchester Metropolitan University as well as University of Canterbury.

Apple, John Bascom Professor of Education, University of Wisconsin, US; Madison and World Scholar and Professor of Educational Policy Studies, Institute of Education, University of London, UK
