Professor Maria Tamboukou, University of East London


What is our present today? How have we become what we are and what are the possibilities of ‘becoming other’? This question has triggered and underpinned my on-going research on writing feminist genealogies as ‘histories of the present’.  In doing, this my work has unfolded as an interface of historical and ethnographic inquiries. In this paper, I look back in this body of work, tracing encounters between history and ethnography while framing them within the broader field of narrative research in education.
