Mirhosseini, Seyyed-Abdolhamid; Kianfar, Roya – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019

Bomford, Kate – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article takes as its starting-point four moments that occurred in the course of a year of teaching A-level English Literature in an inner-London sixth-form college. It argues that these moments represented forms of learning and experience that were valuable, but that fell outside the prevailing version of what (English) lessons are for. It…

Hippisley, Sulaxana – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article explores the ways in which the teaching of canonical texts such as Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" intersects with discourses of race and identity in multicultural classrooms. Informed by Chinua Achebe's post-colonial reading of Conrad and the concept of 'double consciousness' adopted by W. E. B. Du Bois, I examine my…

Pang, Hanzhou – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
This study attempts to explore the issue of intercultural and transnational negotiation in written English communication.

Railton, Nikki – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
This essay charts the experiences of a group of Year 10 students studying literature together. I challenge the current educational thinking that the literature classroom should consist exclusively of a set of canonised texts handed down from teacher to student. Instead I consider the importance of ensuring students have space to explore themselves…

Rickard, Angela – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2014
Reflecting on my experience as a teacher and a lesbian in a second-level school in Ireland in the early 1990s, I use an auto-ethnographic approach first to explore some of the ways dominant narratives can silence, constrain and marginalise some people. Projecting forward to an imagined future, I draw on creative writing to "re-frame" how…

Misson, Ray – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
Many of the major movements in English teaching over the last 25 years have drawn on poststructuralist/posthumanist theory, filtered through work in cultural studies predicated on the social construction of identity. While this has been enormously productive in many ways, there has been a nagging problem with the question of agency. How can…
