Mary is currently working on an emerging field of research called hydro-sociology, which has at its core an understanding of the hydrological system and the human system as inherently linked.  The project opens up the possibility for a comparative view of how young people access and develop environmental learning through their active working connections with waterways through case studies in the UK and South Africa.  The research applies ethnographic tools to explore the ontological and epistemological position of young people and their understanding, relationship and development as global citizens.

Mary is at the Faculty of Education.
