Prof Mark Freeman profile picture
  • Professor of Social History and Education
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am a historian of modern Britain, focusing on the history of education, youth movements and informal education. I have published widely on modern British social, educational and business history, and was co-investigator on a large AHRC-funded grant, 'The Redress of the Past: Historical Pageants in Britain 1905-2016'. We have recently completed the follow-on phase (also AHRC-funded) of this project. I also worked with Dr Sam Duncan on the AHRC-funded 'Reading Aloud in Britain Today' project, and am currently chair of the advisory board for Dr Humera Iqbal's AHRC-funded 'Partitions of Identity: Explorations of Belonging among Bengalis in Pakistan'.

I have worked at UCL since 2014. I am a member of the executive committee of the International Centre for Historical Research in Education (ICHRE), and a co-editor (with Heather Ellis and Stephanie Olsen) of the journal History of Education, published by Taylor & Francis.

I am a member of the editorial boards of the ECNU Review of Education (East China Normal University) and the Spanish journals Tempora: Revista de Sociologia de Educacion and Easpacio, Tempora y Educacion.
