Miller, Michelle – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
In "Fun Home," Alison Bechdel recounts a version of her family's history through moments of meaningful textual exchange. This paper takes up one such moment, when Alison's father Bruce offers his daughter a queer text, which she uses both to understand her own sexuality and to broach the the queer connection she has just learned they…

Rushek, Kelli A. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
HBO's "The Wire" (2002-2008) is often regarded as one of the best television shows ever aired. Through reiterative viewings and a critical content analysis of the show, I argue that "The Wire" should be used as an anchor text in preservice English education courses in order to foster cosmopolitan literacies in preservice…

Newell, Sarah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This essay explores the role of talk within the English classroom. Classroom talk (in its various forms) is not simply a method for sharing fixed systems of knowledge or information; it is the most useful mechanism for giving learners the space to develop new meanings and new ways of thinking about their surroundings. As soon as learners are…

Hancock, Rae – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
The affordances of the comic book medium facilitate individual, interpretive readings of narrative and as such challenge the notion of a single message or meaning. This article explores how secondary school students encounter and re-orientate themselves to personal concepts of religious and educational authority and authenticity as a consequence…

Philp, Hannah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
In this essay, I draw on the experience of reading "Hamlet" with a class of 11- and 12-Year-old boys in a London comprehensive school. I explore how a number of comments in my classroom reveal the complexities of my students' thinking about gender and sexuality in "Hamlet." I look at how these thoughts are difficult for the…

Yandell, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
What is the relation between research and teaching? Are they entirely distinct activities -- and should they remain so? What is the relation between research and teachers? Should teachers be positioned as either the objects or the recipients of research that is conducted by specialists, researchers who possess categorically different forms of…

It is now five years since the introduction of the current National Curriculum for English in England; it is just over 50 years since the Dartmouth Conference drew together American and English educationalists.

Bomford, Kate – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article takes as its starting-point four moments that occurred in the course of a year of teaching A-level English Literature in an inner-London sixth-form college. It argues that these moments represented forms of learning and experience that were valuable, but that fell outside the prevailing version of what (English) lessons are for. It…

Hippisley, Sulaxana – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article explores the ways in which the teaching of canonical texts such as Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" intersects with discourses of race and identity in multicultural classrooms. Informed by Chinua Achebe's post-colonial reading of Conrad and the concept of 'double consciousness' adopted by W. E. B. Du Bois, I examine my…

Nichols, Sue; Loh, Chin Ee – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
Popular culture images of reading tend to portray readers as solitary individuals deeply immersed in reading a single text in a quiet, undisturbed spot. Yet, in our documentation of adolescent students reading in Singapore secondary schools, we find that there are many ways and modes of reading, much of which is social in nature. Through the use…

Wolfsdorf, Adam; Scott, Alison; Herzog, Sarah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
The controversy surrounding trigger warnings has highlighted a mystifying confound in post-secondary education. Faculty, students and school bureaucracies are divided. While trigger warning proponents emphasise the value of protecting students with trauma histories from unscaffolded exposure to content related to sexuality, violence, race and…

Philp, Hannah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article looks at the ways in which the semiotics of authority are established and challenged during a secondary school English lesson on "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". I focus on the utterances of one student and the context of the classroom in which she finds herself as a means to explore the ways in which pedagogic…

Wheatley, Lance – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
How might English classrooms be spaces where Muslim students are empowered to recognise and resist Islamophobia? This qualitative study draws on theories of critical consciousness and Islamophobia to show how Bassim, a Muslim student, makes sense of Islamophobic encounters through the poetic and analytic writing he creates in his public high…
