Dr Richard Budd

Lecturer in Higher Education

Research Overview

I am a Lecturer in Higher Education, and my main research interests relate to how we can conceptualise and investigate how different groups experience and negotiate being at - or working in - universities. Much of my work to date has been with students, but I am increasingly interested in the dynamics across and between staff and students. This incorporates relational and social justice questions around personal and professional identity, organisational cultures and practices, and the geographical and physical aspects of university campuses. I am particularly interested in exploring how these questions compare on a domestic, as well as international, basis. Alongside and within this work, I am actively involved in moves to decolonise higher education, Lancaster University, and my own practice.
