ROWENA AZADA-PALACIOS, PHD, FHEA
I am a philosopher of education who shuttles between London and Manila. My most recently completed work is on the teaching of national identity in postcolonial contexts. I am also currently involved in a number of philosophy and interdisciplinary research projects related to the concept of educational attunement, critical social theory from a Philippine lens, social justice and mathematics education, and citizenship education in post-conflict settings. I am interested broadly in the intersection between education and political thought, particularly anticolonial/decolonial/postcolonial political thought.
Most of my teaching experience has been at Ateneo de Manila University, where I have taught on the AB Philosophy and MA Philosophy programmes for more than 20 years. I have also previously worked as a senior lecturer, then an associate lecturer, of education at London Metropolitan University, and I have taught on the BA Education Studies programme and the UCL Summer School at University College London.
I hold a PhD in Philosophy of Education from the UCL Institute of Education, University College London, an MA in Citizenship Education from the Institute of Education (London), and MA and AB degrees in philosophy from Ateneo de Manila University.
