Personal profile

Further Information

Dr Elizabeth Hoult is a Professor of Education at Northumbria University in the UK.  Her research interests include the application of literary theory and literary analysis to social research; resilience in education, and adult and community education as ways of nurturing hopeful futures.  Her research has been described as methodologically groundbreaking, stemming from her doctoral monograph ‘Hoult, E.C. (2012) Adult Learning and La Recherche Féminine: Reading Resilience and Hélène Cixous New York: Palgrave Macmillan,  in the way that it juxtaposes literary analysis and qualitative data in order to read social issues. She continues to think about the way that the imaginative engagement with texts allows individuals and communities to imagine alternative futures. To this end she is interested in the civic university as a source of social renewal. Her recent writing has examined a range of literary representations of foundling children who express educational hope through their resilient behaviour in times of hardship and suffering.  She is committed to an academic life which supports teaching, research and knowledge exchange.
