European Teaching Award 2018

Professor Sarikakis was the 2018 European Award for Excellence in Teaching in the Social Sciences and Humanities recipient.   This award honours the life work achievements and teaching philosophy of scholars in the Social Sciences and the Humanities. Katharine's teaching and paedagogical philosophy centres around the development of understandings and agency of citizenship, as an encompassing term for  active participation in public life; the connection of academic and scientific subject matter expertise to real world problems and their solution; the inclusivity of voices and experiences; and the attention to life experience being honoured into the teaching, learning and research process.
