Jeanette Ireland, PhD Cand.BCS 321
Jeanette Ireland has been teaching for a very long time, most of it in the Eastern Arctic regions of Canada. She received her initial training and experience in Scotland before immigrating to Northern Ontario; and from there, after five years teaching K-3 to the Keewatin region and eventually all levels, K-12 before taking on the role of a consultant for bilingual programs throughout the Baffin Region. Her work there included the development of culturally relevant curricula as well as first language, Inuktitut, teaching and learning materials to support curriculum implementation. It was there that she developed her interest in oral history and cultural knowledge and subsequently, the documentation of social and material change through the lives and stories of people who lived through those changes. This collection comprised the primary data for her graduate studies and continues to fuel her research interests in the analysis of oral discourse and performance.
Since coming to St. Mary’s, she has taught courses in the Halifax Inter-University Linguistics Program, in Anthropology and in Women’s Studies. In each of these classes she has been able to include sections which focus on the issues as they relate to the circumpolar world and to the crucial need of Northerners to have their voices heard globally. She is a PhD candidate (Birmingham), Lecturer: Discourse analysis; Inuit oral traditions; translation; oracy and performance; literacy; sociolinguistics; language planning; language issues in education; circumpolar languages and cultures.
