Ronald Soetaert

I have a master degree in language and literature (Dutch and English), worked as teacher and teacher-trainer, wrote a PhD on the communicative turn in education, was chair of the Teacher Education Department, and chair of the Flemish Reading Association.  At this moment, I work as a full professor at the Department of Education (Ghent University) and I teach courses on language and literature teaching, cultural studies, culture, media & education. I supervised PhD research on multiliteracies and literature, literacy narratives (representation), community art projects, the rhetorical turn in education and now I am supervising PhD research on the representation of teaching/reading in fiction, rhetorical perspectives on video games, rhetorical perspectives on social media culture. At this moment my research focuses on education, culture, media with a special interest in the rhetorical and narrative turn.
