My Experiences of Accessing and Engaging with Academia by Emma Louise Hammond


How is it that I have got to 48 years old to realise that I am capable of studying at this level of Higher Education. Or is it possible that I was always capable of studying at this level, but the opportunities were never presented to me in ways that were conducive with my 30-year established role as parent / housewife / chief cook and bottle washer.

As part of my presentation I will be comparing my experiences of accessing and engaging with academia, as a working class woman, to those of my husband as a working class male.
