Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in examining language use and social relations configured and reconfigured in social and cultural practices. As my theoretical and methodological orientations, I draw on the social constructionist paradigm including Discourse Analysis, Discursive Psychology and Cultural Psychology (and open to other approaches). My current research ranges from examining turntaking in group work in HE, to exploring dialogic space in and outside schools and archiving as social remembering. As my long standing interest in social remembering and reconciliation, I am part of the AHRC network of Silence, Memory and Empathy with cultural studies scholars and museum and heritage professionals.
