Power, Pedagogies and Lifelong Learning: Reading between the Lines
Hawkins, Elaine
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v19 n1 p81-94 2012
The UK English subject benchmark statements express the discipline's commitment to contribute to an "ideal of lifelong learning." In this article, I consider what this commitment may mean for practice and explore why its attainment is complex and contentious. In doing so, I examine some of the ways in which lecturers' professional identities are experienced and enacted in educational settings where students have their first introduction to higher education English Studies. I suggest that the pedagogic principles and practices which lecturers describe need to be seen as deeply embedded within networks of social and discipline-based discourses and social and institutional relations.
