My research grows out of my work as a teacher and teacher educator and as an artist. Therefore it is based in a group of interconnected areas: education, development , community engagement . the arts, and the intercultural spaces where these take place.Some of my projects have been sited in one or other of these separate areas, but I am also keenly interested in where they overlap and impact on one another other, and in the ways in which they may inform each other in extending our conceptualisations of learning, and teaching, scholarship and knowledge, aesthetics and semiotics.Research work in the fields of theatre, drama in education, critical literacies, education and cross-cultural perspectives have also lead to further examination of particular methodologies such as practitioner research, action research creative work, and to epistemological questions about the cultural locatedness of knowledge.
