Dr Marlon Moncrieffe leads in the field on research into the history of minority-ethnic group participation in competitive cycling in Britain. His groundbreaking race education work entitled 'Made in Britain: Uncovering the life-histories of Black-British Champions in Cycling' has won wide acclaim for illuminating issues of racial inequality, mono-ethnic representation and the need for anti-racism discourses to support broader inclusion and diversity. His research work has been exhibited in various famous venues across the UK. It has also featured on BBC Television and Radio; ITV Cycling Tour de France; USA and Australian Radio.
His continuing research on curriculum development advances Initial Teacher Training and Primary School education through the use of narrative inquiry as a method for teaching and learning on Race Equality. He focuses particularly on the application of 20th century Black-British history and its cross-cultural interaction with White-Britain for helping to advance education, teaching and learning about fundamental British Values (civic national values) and for 'Decolonising the Curriculum'. He takes an interdisciplinary approach to research through education, history, sociology, arts and humanities.
