Brief description of the Research Team / Research Group / Department
The Sociology of Education Research Group (GRISE), coordinated by Professors María Fernandez Mellizo-Soto and María Susana Vázquez Cupeiro, is made up of lecturers and research staff, both senior and junior, who carry out research and teach in the field of the Sociology of Education. Adhering to the lines of specialisation of its members, GRISE is geared to the study of education policies, social inequalities in education, educational organisations and processes, and social and educational changes associated with the Information and Knowledge Society. In its teaching strand, it contributes to the generation of new knowledge and the training of new teachers and researchers. Some members of GRISE have been working together since the year 2000, having published a total of more than 300 publications in the field of the sociology of education in 2020. The group has independent lines of research, but with coherent and complementary aims, and shared equipment. As well as collaborating on joint research projects, they also form part of a number of research papers financed via external networks. The group is also made up of pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students. A good example of this is that several junior members of the group have had other senior members of the group as their thesis directors or post-doctoral contract tutors. GRISE has also held a Permanent Seminar in the Sociology of Education since 2013.
