Biography

Marta Araújo (PhD, University of London, Institute of Education, School Educational Foundations and Policy Studies, 2003) is a Principal Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra (CES). Her research addresses two complementary lines of enquiry: i) history education and knowledge production, focusing on the teaching and the public history of (anti-)colonialism and enslavement; ii) public policy, political discourse, and ethno-racial discrimination. Marta is Vice-President of the Scientific Board at CES, where she lectures at the doctoral level ('Democracy in the 21st Century', 'Human Rights in Contemporary Societies'). She was a Visiting Researcher at the Centre for Research on Ethnic Relations and Nationalism (CEREN) at the University of Helsinki. At CES, she integrates the Education Policy and Professional Development Observatory (CeiED/CES) and the Education and Citizen Science Working Group (CES). Currently on the Editorial Board of publications in the sociology of 'race' and education in Brazil, Britain, Portugal and the United States, she has published internationally in reputed peer-reviewed journals (e.g. British Journal of Sociology of Education, Ethnic and Racial Studies, Patterns of Prejudice, and 'Race', Ethnicity and Education). She has acted as a scientific advisor on ethno-racial equality and participated in selected expert meetings at national and international levels. She has also been engaged in outreach activities.
