Dr Gillian Fletcher Academic, History

Dr Fletcher's work covers a wide range of areas, best defined under the banner of sociology of knowledge. She has a particular interest in hierarchies of knowledge, identifying and questioning gaps between the rhetoric and practice of knowledge development processes (in both an Australian and international settings), and the lack of value given to phronesis (practical knowledge, which incorporates but goes beyond factual knowledge).

She brings this interest to bear in work as diverse as:

Collaborative evaluation of Victorian-based culture change projects
Development of innovative educational projects (see below) and
Provision of technnical support to organisations in Burma/Myanmar, a country with which she has a 10+ year history. Dr Fletcher has worked in Burma/Myanmar on issues of sexuality and gender, HIV prevention, AIDS care and support and capacity development.
