Julie McLeod

Julie McLeod is a Professor in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education and and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Capability) at the University of Melbourne. Her research is in the history and sociology of education and is guided by a focus on how identities and social possibilities are differentially shaped by school experiences. 

Her work includes qualitative and historical studies of subjectivity, gender and schooling; curriculum history; citizenship, ethics and schooling; progressive and feminist education reform movements; digital scholarship in the social sciences; and genealogies of educational ideas and expert knowledge about adolescence and youth identities. 

Three of Julie’s projects feature on the SOCEY website – the ARC-funded Making Futures; Schooling Memories (with Katie Wright), both of which have been deposited in the SOCEY repository; and the SOCEY-affiliated CADRE project.
