Dr Jane Carnaffan

Lecturer

I have been a lecturer in English for Academic Purposes at Northumbria University since 2000 (with a break to study for my PhD at Newcastle University). I am currently teaching courses on academic writing and research skills. Prior to teaching at Northumbria, I taught English language internationally in Spain, Paraguay, Bulgaria and Japan. I am also a Senior Adjunct Lecturer at Luxembourg University, where I have delivered short courses on research article writing and conference skills. I have an academic background in Modern Languages, Social Sciences, Research Methods, Tourism and Development.

Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

If you are interested in teaching materials which promote a non-essentialist approach to intercultural communication, then take a look at the website below, the result of a BALEAP (British Association of Lecturers of English for Academic Purposes) funded project:
