About me

I’m Agnes Bosanquet, an academic developer and higher education researcher. My work focuses on critical university studies and changing academic work and identities. I completed a PhD in cultural studies in 2010, and use critical theories and creative methodologies to explore questions concerning power relations, discourses and practices of inclusion and exclusion, locations of knowledge and constructions of subjectivity in higher education.

I love reading, writing, listening and thinking, and have found like-minded souls through my academic work. I have two children who, along with a partner, a dog, chooks and a garden in the bush, teach me to revel in ordinary affects.

My recent (online, publicly available) work includes:
