Research Interests

Rebecca’s research is interdisciplinary and is grounded in a passion for the work of Mikhail Bakhtin and his dialogical approach to language. From this Rebecca has developed ecological dialogism - an approach to understanding language and meaning making as an embodied process, enacted within a physical and cultural environment. Rebecca has a particular interest in the role of narrative in shaping cultural identity in Orkney, and the relationship between local texts and everyday discourse. Her work engages with the Environmental Humanities and feminist approaches to science and technology, energy and environment.
