About me

Achilleas Kostoulas
Hello and welcome to my site!

I am an early-career academic working in the field of English Language education. In my research, I have used complex systems theory to understand foreign language pedagogy in the “periphery” of the English-speaking world, i.e., those places where the English language is not used natively or officially, but it is nevertheless extensively and intensively taught. Some of my work has been published in journals and edited collections, which are listed here.

I currently work as a researcher in the ELT Methodology and Research unit (Fachdidaktik Anglistik) at the University of Graz, in Austria. In the past, I worked at the Epirus Institute of Technology, where I was responsible for the delivery of courses in English Language and Language Teacher Education. You can find information about the courses I taught in this page. I have also worked in various teaching and managerial capacities in primary and secondary schools in Greece, of which the most recent post was at the University of Ioannina 2nd Model Experimental Primary School.

I was recently awarded a PhD in Education from The University of Manchester. You can find information about my thesis in this page. I also hold an MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, from The University of Manchester, and a BA in English Studies from the University of Athens.

In this site, I have put together some information about myself and my academic work, which I hope you find of interest. This site also hosts my blog, where I record information that I find interesting, as well as comments on English language pedagogy and research methodology.

Do take a look around, and feel free to contact me for comments or questions.
