About Dr Remy Low

In his research, Remy examines educational policy and practice in relation to broader social, cultural, and religious issues. He is also interested in exploring ways to cultivate greater awareness of such issues through contemplative pedagogy (e.g. mindfulness, deep listening, process art, etc.).

Prior to his current appointment, Remy was a secondary social science teacher, a lecturer and tutor in gender and cultural studies, and the academic advisor for the Mount Druitt University Hub project for widening participation in higher education. Remy completed his PhD in the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney, where he researched the historical, political and economic dimensions of the debates over religious schooling in Australia.
