Young People, Popular Culture and Education

Moira Peelo, Lancaster University, UK.

This book is written in the belief that supervisors’ professional development is enriched by recognising the variety of perspectives, experiences and forms of PhD that shape the doctoral experience. $64.00 Pb, ISBN 9781441177544 Quantity Publish December 2010, 208 pages Continuum Education
