EDGE is a research group based at the Faculty of Education at the University of Oulu that examines the multiple relationships between Education, Diversity, Globalisation and Ethics. EDGE is committed to ethical internationalism, epistemological pluralism, North-South-East-West dialogue, intellectual and theoretical rigor and research based (teacher) education.
EDGE hosts international, inter-disciplinary and cross-sectoral research collaborations and seminars in the areas of: global citizenship, ethical globalism, language and culture, global, intercultural, multicultural, indigenous, anti-racist and transformative education, critical and post-critical pedagogies, and pedagogies of difference and dissensus.
EDGE also supports postgraduate students at the University of Oulu through the creation of a vibrant, safe and constructive collaborative atmosphere for research training. EDGE is coordinated by Prof Vanessa de Oliveira Andreotti.
