The reviewer comments were very thorough and helpful (which is not always the case!), […]

I’m reeling somewhat from the shock of making my first academic application and actually getting the job, but looking forward to it all the same – it’s a strong research community and they seem to […]

After various wranglings with publishers and reworkings on the part of the contributors, their proposal has been accepted by Continuum and will hopefully go to press at the end of 2012. The full reference will be […]

Article submission

I’ve just submitted an article to Gender and Education based on a content analysis I did last year as part of the MSc Educational Research. The article looks at the representation of gender relations in the online version of New Headway, and the ways in which theorisations of gender, identity and language learning may inform, and be informed by, the emergent postmethod movement […]
