Sara Camacho Felix is Assistant Professorial Lecturer for the Atlantic Fellows in Social and Economic Equity programme at the International Inequalities Institute. She is a practitioner-researcher whose praxis focuses on equitable and reflexive pedagogies in higher education. Sara is also a member of LSE’s Decolonising Collective, and she is dedicated to reframing LSE education through a decolonising lens to better understand the assumptions made about university study, identity and equity.
While working at LSE’s Teaching and Learning Centre in 2018-19, Sara wrote LSE’s Inclusive Education Action Plan. This initiative aims to reduce and eliminate black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) attainment gaps through LSE-wide structural change. She previously worked at LSE LIFE as a learning developer, where she supported master’s students throughout the dissertation process.
Sara completed a doctorate in the sociology of education at the University of Sussex’s Centre for Higher Education and Equity Research. In her dissertation, she drew on critical race theory and postcolonial feminism to argue that critical thinking needs to move from being objective to radically subjective, where it is re-embodied to counter the false objectivity of neoliberal thinking.
Prior to joining LSE, Sara spent over 11 years teaching in higher education at institutions in the UK, Qatar, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Poland. Her work with students has always focused on reflexivity, criticality, and the development of praxis for a higher education system dedicated to creating more equitable societies.
