Using Metaphor Analysis to Research Researchers’ Conceptions
This is a collection of some of my publications about metaphor analysis. All were previously published in internationally recognised, peer-reviewed journals during my PhD candidature at The Australian National University, and were reports on my on-going research about PhD students’ conceptions of research. I used metaphor analysis to analyse the students’ responses to a survey asking them to decribe their research.
The order presented here is not necessarily the order in which the papers were published. I have re-arranged them to make a more coherent account of the story and progress of my work.
