My name is Emma Pauncefort and I am the Founder of The Critical Literacy Project.
I spent the first decade of my working career in research and teaching in higher education, secondary education, with additional experience acquired in curriculum enrichment work.
A linguist 'by trade', I am passionate about the suppleness of language. But I am also worried by the exploitation of language to manipulate people, especially children, as they make important decisions.
I founded The Critical Literacy Project to undertake an important mission: to empower young people with critical literacy skills fit for the C21st.
