New AHRC-funded research project

Odd: feeling different in the world of education

Researchers from Manchester Metropolitan University will be interrogating the idea of oddness in a new project developed with a local primary school.

The three-year interdisciplinary project, Odd: feeling different in the world of education, will be exploring oddness: what it means; what its value is and why this matters, and what it reveals about ordinary, everyday encounters between people, places and things inside school and beyond.

Funded by the Arts Humanities Research Council, this new project involves the whole primary school community in the research, engaging children from all year groups (aged 3-11), parents, teachers and non-teaching staff using new alternative methods.
