Professional Memory in Context: Can It Help Counter the "Counter-Revolution"?
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v22 n4 p382-392 2015
This article explores the concept of "Professional Memory" in English teaching. It argues that English teacher memories, analysed through a collective lens and in particular conjunctures, can provide powerful evidence of practitioner-led reform and development. Such evidence can be used to challenge the existing theoretical framework of English teaching and the dominant discourses surrounding the subject.
