Community and Business
Linda worked with the community and voluntary sector across Sussex to develop a Foundation Degree in Community Development and a range of Continuing Professional Development modules relevant to the sector.
From 2009-2011 she was the lead for the Centre for Work and Learning at the University (www.centreforworkandlearning.org.uk), working with local employers and businesses to develop responsive professional training opportunities.
Linda is a Trustee of the Friends Centre in Brighton, an Independent Adult Education Centre.
Linda's research interests cover adult, higher education and lifelong learning theory, policy and practice, especially informal, community and inter-cultural dimensions of learning. She has developed a focus on refugee and migration studies which has fostered an interdisciplinary approach to her research and enabled her to explore issues of learning, social inclusion, citizenship and identity from a distinctive and unique perspective. She has expertise in life history, biographical and narrative research methodologies.
She has a particular interest in participative and peer research and has worked with refugee community researchers on several projects. One of her most recent research projects - Hidden Histories: Intercultural Dialogue - involved working with refugees to research, collect and archive the oral histories of migrants in Brighton and Hove. A website of the project can be found at: http://www.sussex.ac.uk/cce/hiddenhistories/migrantsbrighton
Linda has recently completed research on ways of expanding and improving part-time higher education in the UK. This research is commissioned by the Institute for Employment Studies and funded by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills.
Her most recent book is published by Trentham Books:
