I am pleased to announce that Ruth Irwin is joining the SoEd as an Adjunct Professor. Ruth is an experienced global researcher, lecturer, and leader with an interdisciplinary degree in environmental philosophy and education from the University of Glasgow. She has worked at the University of Auckland, AUT, the University of Fiji and most recently was the Head of the School of Education at the University of Aberdeen.
Ruth connects with multiple interests across the SoEd, including climate change and social transition, philosophy of technology, economics, new materialism, Heidegger, Nietzsche, Deleuze and Guattari, feminist philosophy, and indigenous philosophy.
She has a passion for building a vibrant research community that is forward looking, resilient, and adapting to our rapidly changing political, economic, and ecological environment.
