Jan McArthur

Jan McArthur is Senior Lecturer at Lancaster University, UK. Her research spans two themes: education and social justice, and the nature of higher education. She explores different interpretations of critical pedagogy, in particular ways that conceptualisations of knowledge impact upon social justice. Particular interests are critical theory and Theodor Adorno's work. Her 2018 book Assessment for Social Justice:Perspectives and Practices within Higher Education draws on the critical theory of Axel Honneth. Jan is Australian who engaged with Indigenous issues since school years. She lives in Scotland but works in England.
