About Ansgar Allen

Ansgar Allen Ansgar is a Lecturer in Education at the University of Sheffield. His research investigates the unquestionable ‘goods’ of education and remains open to the possibility that education in all its forms, even where it appears most benign, is a form of violence. His work offers a history of its ‘good’ intentions. He is the author of 'Benign Violence: Education in and beyond the Age of Reason' (2014, Palgrave). He can be contacted at: @ansgarallen
