Dr Steven Stolz Senior Lecturer, Education Melb

Steven Stolz, PhD is a Senior Lecturer at La Trobe University, Australia. Before he became an academic, he taught for 10 years as a secondary school teacher in the following curriculum areas: mathematics, science, religious education, health and physical education. He also has a background in analytical and continental traditions of philosophy which has led to a diverse array of research interests that range from: philosophy of action, ethics/moral philosophy, aesthetics, epistemology, and phenomenology. At the moment, his primary area of scholarship is concerned with educational philosophy and theory, but he also has a particular interest in the areas of embodied cognition, narrative enquiry, and learning theories in psychology. His scholarship is best described as being located at the intersection between education and philosophy, particularly how theory informs practice, and/or how practice informs theory.
