Institute of Education

Flora Petrik works as a research fellow and lecturer at the Department of Foundations of Education at the Institute for Educational Science, University of Tübingen. She studied Educational Science, German Studies and Comparative Literature in Vienna and Jyväskylä and has been an associate member of the DFG graduate program “Doing Transitions” since January 2020.

In her dissertation project, she investigates the questions of how students acquire an academic habitus, which (potentially empowering) spaces the university opens up for habitual transformations and how these processes can be methodically grasped. Her other areas of focus in research and teaching include social inequality in schools and universities as well as epistemological and methodological issues.
