Joyce Canaan

Joyce-CanaanJoyce Canaan is a professor of sociology at Birmingham City University. Her research centres on higher education learning and teaching in the increasingly precarious and disciplining university system. As an academic activist, Joyce views critical pedagogy as enabling the prefiguring of a higher education system that prioritises people over profits, the collective over the individual. Joyce is currently researching the possibilities of the new student movement, as well as strategies for implementing and reflecting on progressive alternatives to the current university system.
