Connors-Manke, Beth – CEA Forum, 2019
In face-to-face conversation, it's easy to react with shock and moralism to the incivility enabled by social media, easy to lament that we live in an era when communication has gone wrong.

Jaeger, Cora – Brock Education: A Journal of Educational Research and Practice, 2018
Tracking the depictions of animals in children's literature through history reveals not only what authors think about animals, but also what they think about the human experience and of childhood itself.

Doecke, Brenton; Mead, Philip – Pedagogy, Culture and Society, 2018
This essay poses the question of the role that literary knowledge plays in subject English. It thus engages with current debates, largely prompted by Michael Young's call to 'bring knowledge back in', about the need to restore academic knowledge as the basis of the school curriculum.
