Dr Jess Elmore


I have recently completed a PhD in Library and Information Science at University of Sheffield.  My PhD was a case study exploring information sharing in two ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes.

Prior to my PhD I have worked as a community learning development worker, a teacher and a university administrator.

Research interests

My research interests centre on the intersections of migration, education and information. I have a particular interest in information literacy and information practice but this is informed by wider interest in sociocultural and critical theories.

I am an experienced qualitative researcher interested in case study and participatory methods.

I am currently the research assistant on project: Improving educational and social outcomes for deaf children of Roma families in the UK
