Call for early career English teachers

Are you an early career English teacher? Are you interested in sharing your views about teaching English? The Investigating Literary Knowledge in the Making of English Teachers project is seeking English teachers in their first four years of teaching to take part in interviews.

The project is concerned with the place of literary knowledge in the making of English teachers – where literary knowledge comes from and how it changes or plays out in different institutional contexts. The research is funded by the Australian Research Council and is nationwide. If you are interested in being a part of this research, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
