I am a co-Investigator on a new Wellcome Trust project that will explore how adolescents use social media to seek out information relating to their mental health wellbeing. The project is led by Dr Michelle O’Reilly and the interdisciplinary team includes Dr Natasha Whitman, Professor Jason Hughes, Professor Panos Vostanis and Professor Nisha Dogra (all from the University of Leicester).
Further details on the project can be found here
Tomorrow I will present some of the findings from the Screencasts in Media Studies project at the British Association of Lecturers in English for Academic Purposes (BALEAP) conference, which is being held at the University of Leicester.
The symposium, entitled ‘Institutional perspectives on the international student’ will involve academics and support staff from Leicester. Details on the panel can be found
