Dr Cheryl Glowrey researches in rural education, and specifically the significance of place to learning and issues of social justice for students in regional and rural areas. Dr Glowrey’s research includes topics from early years, primary and secondary education, with a particular focus on the middle years 5-9.

In addition, she researches and publishes in the environmental history of Gippsland, including Aboriginal history. This research draws on archives and oral histories to write narratives that connect people to place, and to bring a contemporary perspective on controversial events that continue to resonate today.
