About this site

I’m a researcher and lecturer in the school of social sciences at Leeds Beckett University. Known to others as Glen Jankowski mostly because that is my name (see Jones, Bridgett. 2001). I’m trying to document and share some ‘a-ha’  moments that I’ve had in research and teaching.

Other projects

Youtube channel – In the spirit of open access, I have gotten over the horror of recording your own voice and recorded some of my lectures (&with slides) here.

BME Psychology – Along with colleagues at Leeds Beckett University, I also run a website designed to showcase BME psychological and anti-racist work to diversify psychology: www.bmepsychology.com

The Balding Buddy – this is a website that provides advice for hair loss that isn’t from a Big Pharmaceutical company or from a hairloss transplant surgeon (many of whom regularly write for Huffington Post): www.thebaldingbuddy.wordpress.com
