Professor Keith Grieves

EdD programme director

About

I am EdD programme director for the joint course (Kingston and Roehampton universities) and REF Unit co-ordinator for Education. I supervise research degree students and teach on the MRes (Education) programme. As a member of the Faculty Research Degrees Committee and convenor of the EdD Research seminar for Kingston students, I support the research environment for doctoral work in Education and have examined PhD theses as an internal and external examiner.

I have contributed to a range of courses in Teacher Education and professional learning at undergraduate and postgraduate levels since appointment in 1990. Having also contributed to history education and to the MA in local history, my publications are focused on early twentieth century British history, with emphasis on rural communities in the era of the Great War. In 2011-12 I was Research Fellow at the Museum of English Rural Life, University of Reading.

Research

I conduct research in early twentieth century British history, specifically rural communities and commemorative landscapes in the era of the First World War. My research interests include agriculture on the British home front, the relationship of 'land' and identity in time of war and the preservation of open spaces for public access. Current research projects include war memorial processes in Surrey and the sociocultural history of places of natural beauty, including Box Hill and Leith Hill.
