Raising provocative questions about power and voice in writing partnerships Janice explores issues of representation and protection of personal and sacred knowledge in physical and virtual worlds. With an Indigenous scholar and artist, oral and written narratives of their experience at a sacred site allows an intercultural generation of land-emergent knowledges, but translating that experience to the virtual world Second Life presents greater challenges. In a second research partnership Janice steps back as ‘lead’ author, becoming midwife to the authorial voice of a transnational Scot as she engages with the mystery of her beginnings through powerful autoethnographic narratives.


Visiting scholar and Senior Lecturer in Arts Education at the University of Southern Queensland, Janice’s career as an educator spans 30 years and four continents. Her interdisciplinary research brings together the arts, literacies and emerging technologies, spatial and border theories and concepts of identity, power and interculturality. A Churchill Fellow, Janice is co-convenor for the Australian Association for Research in Education narrative inquiry Special Interest Group. Her recent publications include Weaving Words: Personal and professional transformation through writing as research (2014) Cambridge Scholars Publishing, and numerous book chapters, journal articles and conference presentations.
