Angeliki Lima is a second-year PhD candidate in the School of Education. She is a recipient of a Studentship Award from the School of Education and she is supervised by Dr Aidan Seery.
Her current research seeks to explore education in prisons, by using Axel Honneth’s sociocultural theory of recognition and Paulo Freire’s radical pedagogy, as a lens of inquiring into the educational experiences of adult prisoners and the existence of transformations with respect to the “relation to self” that participants identify. The comparison between Ireland and Greece provides different sociopolitical and financial landscapes and fertile ground in order to examine how countries in crisis (Greece) and countries recovering from a crisis (Ireland) approach prison adult education.
Angeliki holds an Honours Bachelor's Degree in Primary Education (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki), a Master’s Degree in Educational Studies with a specialisation on “Society, Education and Pedagogy” (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) and a Certificate in Adult Education (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens). She has taught as a Volunteer Greek Language Teacher for Adult Immigrants in the Solidarity School “Odysseas” in Thessaloniki, Greece and she has completed an internship as a Research Assistant in the Cultures, Academic Values and Education (CAVE) research centre in the School of Education, Trinity College Dublin.
