Congratulations to School of Education lecturer, Dr Mary Masterson, on the recent publication of her new book: Perception of the Self and Other and the Role of Language: An Exploratory Qualitative Study. Published by Peter Lang. This publication is about learning culture in the post-primary curriculum. It aims to stimulate thinking and increase consciousness about the cultural dimension of foreign language teaching. Learning how to interrogate diverse cultural practices using multiple cultural frameworks has been shown to facilitate authentic engagement with the complexities of diverse pluralistic societies.
