  • Dr Gabrielle Ivinson

    I am Senior Lecturer in Psychology and Education, Cardiff School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University, and a social and developmental psychologist who studies gender, education and poverty.

    My research explores how place and specifically post-industrial places influence children’s and young people’s educational achievement and aspirations. I seek to understand how the locale community and home environments afford children and young people routines, understandings and practices that can support or hinder their academic progress, and particularly the untapped, hidden knowledge and resources that circulate in south Wales valley communities that could be harnessed for economic growth.

    I am co-author of Rethinking Single Sex Teaching, (2007 Open University) and co-editor of Knowledge and Identity: concepts and applications in Bernstein’s sociology of knowledge, (2011, Routledge). I am co-editor of the journal Gender and Education.
