EDUCATION In undergrad I studied French and Spanish Bachelor of Arts Diploma of Languages (French) 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 For my final year, I 1 year went on exchange exchange to France
EDUCATION Bachelor of Arts Bachelor of Arts Diploma of Languages (French) (Honours) French (1st Class) 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Back in Australia I wanted to make the most of the language skills I had developed in France, and build on my BA, so I studied honours
EDUCATION I returned to uni in 2008, thinking only to get a TESOL qualification Graduate Bachelor of Arts Diploma in Bachelor of Arts Applied (Honours) Diploma of Languages (French) French (1st Class) Linguistics 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Instead I discovered Systemic Functional Linguistics, which explained things I implicitly knew about language but could never have identified.
So when the opportunity arose in 2009 tostudy a Masters degree by research inLinguistics, then upgrade to a PhD in 2010,I took it.Inspired by my jazz musician brother, Iresearched the academic writing ofhonours students of jazz performance.In December 2012 I submitted my thesis:
EDUCATIONDoctor of Philosophy in Linguistics 2012 Title: On notes and knowers: the representation, evaluation and legitimation of jazz Supervisors: Dr Peter Mickan; Dr Jennifer Rosevear Key methodological frameworks: Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL), Appraisal Theory, Systemic Functional Multimodal Discourse Analysis (SF-MDA), Legitimation Code Theory (Semantics and Specialisation) Summary: This thesis investigates how jazz performance students at a conservatorium write about music. The research identifies the multisemiotic representation of jazz through the incorporation of music notation. It investigates the evaluation of jazz through the use of attitudinal language to position musicians as worthy of research. It also investigates the legitimisation of jazz through the specialisation of musicians and musical knowers.
