Lavinia Hirsu


I am a Lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Glasgow. My research and teaching are multidisciplinary as I work at the confluence of digital literacies, theories of cultural diversity and social inclusion, academic writing, translingualism and translingual pedagogy.  I have recently been involved in a series of international projects, including an AHRC network,  Children’s Literature in Critical Contexts of Displacement: Exploring how story and arts-based practices create ‘safe spaces’, as well as a British Academy project, entitled Strengthening Urban Engagement of Universities in Asia and Africa. Together with my colleague, Sally Zacharias, I have developed a British Council ELTRA project entitled Challenging the Translingual Turn: Student-Teachers’ Perceptions, Practices and Networks. For more information about my work, please visit my profile and website.
