Dr. Cara Blaisdell is Lecturer in Early Years Education at the University of Strathclyde. She is an experienced early years practitioner whose research work focuses on children's rights, mainly (but not exclusively) in the context of early learning and childcare. She is particularly interested in exploring how young children's voice, agency and contributions to social life are recognized within interdependent social relationships. She also works on methodology and ethics in research with children. Dr. Blaisdell is currently developing work around the lived experiences of adults and young children in outdoor play and learning, and how these experiences are entangled with wider social trends, political and economic considerations.
