Research areas

For the time being I am submerged in the work on my PhD thesis, which has been granted the following working title: The rhetoric and didactical practices of the five year teacher education - a study on a reform's political theory, critical mechanisms and reform life in practice. The intention here is to compare the formative rhetoric behind the introduction of obligatory five year teacher education in Norway, with the practice and discoursive context the reform meets when it is attempted to be translated into a political reality.
