Counter-Narratives in Language Education Research, Center for Language Education Research, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK (Online), May 18, 2021, 2-4 BST.
Counter-Narratives in Language Education Research will highlight presentations by Dr. Nelson Flores, University of Pennsylvania and Dr. Giovanna Fassetta, University of Glasgow, with contributions from University of Leeds colleagues: Dr. Daniel Fobi, Dr. Kate Spowage and Rumana Hossain.
The speakers’ presentations in diverse areas of language education inquiry will lead to a more general reflection. Among the topics to be discussed:
- What are the dominant narratives of language (and) education in our respective contexts and domains of inquiry?
- Which/whose stories are not included in them and why do they need to be
- How does our research need to change to make space for the multiple, complex and often competing counter-narratives?

Our increasingly transcultural cities are substantially shaping research agendas.

Acting as catalyst for collaboration across the School, the Faculty, and the Leeds city region, the Fellow will organise seminars with international speakers, network internationally, and build local collaborations. There is an opportunity to maximise inter-cultural partnerships in the culturally diverse cities of Yorkshire and particularly within the Leeds conurbation. You will co-supervise PhDs and work on and contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes the School of English. You will also be expected to submit grant applications for personal fellowships, for example, an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) early-career Fellowship; Leverhulme Fellowship, and small individual or networking research grants as well as work with colleagues across the schools to submit larger grants and to target relevant themed research funding, in particular Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 6; ‘Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’and the AHRC’s Translating Cultures theme.
You will have demonstrated research excellence in the broadly defined field of transculturalism and in addition will have begun to develop a strong teaching profile derived in part from this expertise. You will also have a developed awareness of, and aptitude for, maximising the advantages offered by the funding landscape, including the impact agenda.
You will be exceptionally well placed to make a significant contribution to the School’s research and grant capture, as well as its excellence in research-based teaching, and will be able to enjoy a thriving research community with substantial expertise in the related areas of Critical and Cultural Theory and Postcolonial Literatures and Cultures.
