Welcome to Matters Academic...

Peace, one and all...
Ahlan wa Sahlan and welcome to my new blog Matters Academic. This blog will, insha Allah (or God willing), be a space for me to publicise my academic work. I intend to post material relating to previous studies, as well as drafts of projects I'm currently working on. I also hope to post extended essays on a number of topics.
As you will see, I already have a number of blogs. The main one is Abdur Rahman's Corner. Here, you will find my thoughts on a wide range of topics. In particular, these mostly relate to my religious and spiritual interests. I am a Muslim (and have been so for some 7 years). You can find out more about that side of my life at the Corner. 'Abdur Rahman' is my Muslim name and in this sense, it also functions as a nom de plume.
I work in the Religious & Theological Studies department of a University in South Wales, Britain, where I do a number of things. I hold a first class degree in History from Lancaster University and an MA in Ancient History from the University of Wales Lampeter. I also have a PGCE in Post-compulsory Education and Training. In other words, as you might guess, I work in and am passionate about, Higher Education. Not surprisingly, therefore, I have my very own education blog (called Matters Educational). Here, you will find my thoughts on the theory and practice of education. You will also find a number of essays and reflections on key educational topics.
Ma'as salama,
Abdur Rahman
