Molly Pardoe

Molly Pardoe is an artist researcher specialising in the intersection of learning and art practice. She is currently a PhD candidate at the Centre for Arts and Learning, Goldsmiths College. Her practice-based research looks at the connection between transnationalism and art practice: how they inform and create understandings of each other. These inquiries reorient belonging through processes of untethered histories and situated ecologies .Broadly, Molly is interested in the ways transnational perspectives can offer alternative
narratives in collective spaces, and how art practice informs national identity in contemporary contexts.

These interests expand into the pedagogical capacities of practice-led inquiry. Prior to current research, Molly completed an MSc within Birkbeck’s psychosocial department ,
which focused on the embodiment of transnationalism in educational settings. She also ran workshops with Reggio Children, which explored methods of embodied pedagogy in a
variety of learning settings. Molly currently runs pedagogically-led critical sessions for her department, runs workshops in practice-led group settings, and co-runs a practice-based multi-institutional research group for current arts and learning PhD students.
