Dr Edward Wright’s academic interests revolve around narrative and critical pedagogies, as well as the psychology and philosophy of education and well-being, particularly in the holistic development of humanities teachers. His doctoral research focused on the role of digital technologies, especially photography and filmmaking, in contributing to meaning-making and identity formation in adolescence through narrative pedagogies.
His academic journey has sparked an interest in exploring spirituality as a means of meaning-making, which can be addressed narratively and through a cross-curricular approach, tapping into the positive potential of human vulnerability.
