Personal statement

Dr Cristina Costa is a Lecturer in Digital Education and SCholarship in the School of Education, Strathclyde University.

Her research focuses on the intersection of education and the participatory web through a sociological lens, especially Pierre Bourdieu’s key concepts.  She is also interested in broader issues regarding the participatory web in the context of a changing society.

Cristina has a research record that links social theory to emerging academic areas such as Technology Enhanced Learning in an attempt to bridge existing gap between theory and practice. This has resulted in researching areas as diverse as Curriculum Innovation, Digital Scholarship, Literacies and e-Health. In 2013 she completed her PhD on the participatory web in the context of academic research: landscapes of change and conflicts.

She is the co-editor of the Social Theory Applied blog/website www.socialtheoryapplied.com

She has been an external examiner (Ph.D and Master's Vivas for the Open University in Lisbon and Universidad Europea in Madrid)
