Other research interests include language teaching and social justice; issues of language, culture, identity, curriculum and pedagogy; narrative approaches to teaching, learning and research; cultural studies; critical pedagogy; and poststructuralist theory. In terms of graduate supervision, I am also interested in supervising people who would like to do creative projects such as film, video or audio productions, stories, poetry, etc. as part of their graduate work.
