Welcome to my digital home. I am a woman, a friend, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a maker, a gardener, a blogger, an open and itinerant scholar, and a fedwiki fan.
I retired from working in a Higher Education institution in January 2013. I taught, did research and managed Masters programmes. I love having more time, though never enough, for learning and pursuing my interests in reading, gardening, textile crafts and other things. I still write and conduct research in areas that interest me. So please explore my blog and other resources to see where our interests may overlap.
You can contact me on Twitter @francesbell or here.
