Summary

Professor Jonathan Glazzard is the first Rosalind Hollis Professor of Education for Social Justice in the School of Education at the University of Hull.

Rosalind G Hollis (4 Apr 1931 - 6 Dec 2021) was a former student at the University of Hull. In 1949, Rosalind studied mathematics at the University and in her fourth year she completed her teaching practice at Hunmanby Hall Methodist Boarding School, near Filey in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Following university, she taught in Surrey. Later, she became a mathematics teacher at Darlington High School for Girls. During her time as a tutor at Darlington College of Education, Rosalind authored or co-authored over a dozen mathematics text books and aids to help children understand mathematical concepts. Her "Mathspacks" can still be bought on the internet and have a five star rating, and her GCSE Practice books can still be found. Even on holiday, Ros would keep some of her books in the boot of the car so that when she passed a school she could jump out and show her books to the headteacher.

Jonathan's research focuses on the experiences of minoritized individuals and groups. Jonathan sits on the Editorial Boards of several journals including the International Journal of Educational and Life Transitions and Equity in Education and Society. He is a co-convenor of the British Educational Research Association Special Interest Group, Mental Health and Wellbeing in Education. His current research focuses on the experiences of LGBTQ+, disabled youth. Recent publications have focused on mental health, educational and life transitions and early reading development in children. Jonathan holds Visiting Professorships at BGU, Lincoln, Newman University, Birmingham and the University of Northampton.

I teach on undergraduate an postgraduate Education degrees, including programmes which lead to Qualified Teacher Status. I also supervise students at doctoral level. I am a National Teaching Fellow, awarded in 2015 for my contribution to learning and teaching in higher education.
