Ms Anna Llewellyn
Anna Llewellyn joined the department in 2005, having taught mathematics in secondary schools in Nottingham. Since joining Durham she has led the mathematics strand of the PGCE Secondary course. In addition, she works on several MA modules and is pathway leader for the MA Education.
Anna also leads on equality and diversity in the department. She runs workshops on 'tackling and preventing homophobia' for both ITT students and school teachers. She also runs an LGBTQ+ group for student-teachers at Durham.
Her research interests are in the areas of: discourses, normalisation, mathematics, identity, gender, sexuality and policy. She has a philosophical take on sociology and is primarily interested in poststructural forms of analysis. Anna is currently completing her doctoral studies which are based around unpacking ‘truths’ of the mathematics classroom.
