Barbara Crossouard is a Reader in Education. Her research interests are centred around education and the production of identities, in particular whose identities are privileged in these processes, and whose marginalised - and related issues of equality.  Her current interests revolve around gender, youth and citizenship.

Before beginning her academic career, Barbara lived and worked for many years in different contexts in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, experiences which have contributed to her strong current interest in equality and equity issues in education in the Global South.
