Dr Melissa Jogie
Melissa’s academic career has evolved through her research and teaching, to encompass a wide range of pursuits under the theme of ‘education for social wellbeing’. This theme is underscored by her furthering interests in cultural and intersectional studies, social psychology, and philosophy.
Melissa has proposed a meta-theory of social activism which overarches her forthcoming works on fairness, critical race theory, digital technologies, and postcolonial pedagogy. These new theoretical insights have led to 7 successful research grants (where she leads as Principal Investigator and a cumulative research of approximately £84,000 from 2020-2021). Of these awards her most recent are three recent British Academy Awards (2019-2022), a UKRI intervention grant on domestic abuse and violence against women (2022) and a cross-institutional knowledge exchange funded by the Church of England (2021).
While completing her PhD at the Australian National University (2017), she was awarded a Visiting Fellowship at the University of Oxford (2015). In 2020, she was short-listed for the Academic Lecturer of the Year Award by the Roehampton Student Union. Melissa is currently the Student Success Coordinator for Education Studies and an elected Academic Representative on University of Roehampton’s Senate. Webpage: www.melissajogie.com | Twitter: @Mjple
