Katy Oswald is a Senior Research Officer in the Power and Popular Politics Cluster. She is also a Psychotherapist in-training. Her teaching and research interests lie in the interplay between subjective/psychological understandings of personal and social change, and how power shapes (and is shaped by) individuals and society.
Katy is interested in how a more inter-disciplinary approach to research and teaching can expand our understanding of how change happens, and contribute to progressive social change. She teaches on the ‘Power and Social Perspectives on Development’ module in the autumn term, and co-convenes and teaches on the ‘Reflective and Creative Practice and Social Change’ module in the spring term. She is an experienced facilitator of participatory action learning/research.
