Ashby School Visit De Montfort University

Following this summer's 'Academics in the Classroom' conference, two delegates - Tom Mummery and Alice Wood - collaborated on an English outreach project that saw fifteen Year 13 students from Ashby School in Leicestershire visit De Montfort University this month for an enrichment day. Alice and her colleagues at De Montfort organised a seminar on corpus linguistics and a lecture on the representation of women in magazines from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. The students then had the chance to visit the university's archives to examine a collection of women's magazines from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

You can read more about the collaboration on the Ashby School website.
