 Lucy Angus received her doctorate from the Faculty of Education at York University in 2019 and joined the faculty in the same year. Lucy's work spans interdisciplinary approaches to early childhood education research and pedagogy. Her PhD thesis examined children’s perceptions of their experiences through literature, interviews, and case studies. Lucy's work is interested in constructions and figurations of childhood in the institutional and relational histories of education (particularly in times and accounts of trans and multi-disciplinarity) and how this knowledge of the child informs pedagogical, historical, methodological, and literary accounts. This background supports a pedagogical approach driven by inquiry and attention to how novel conceptions and experimental study can shape and transform early childhood education.

Scholarly Interests

 Interdisciplinary Research in Early Childhood Education; Early and Emergent Literacy; Children's Literature; Psychoanalysis & Education (emotional worlds of children and teachers); Representations of Children in Educational Institutions, Intellectual Histories of Childhood and Early Childhood Education.
