However, and in an attempt to achieve a perspective on poststructuralist and feminist approaches to these matters, I have found some of the stances of other writers useful – for example Giddens’ (1991) approach to self-identity and modernity (see below), or Usher and Edwards’ (1994) examination of postmodernism in relation to education.

Prior to this, I considered and included other theories (such as the work of Collins, Brown and Holum, 1991) as they provided a fit with my philosophy and could explain aspects of learning undertaken in this setting.
