Professional biography

Sharon Goodman joined the Open University as a Lecturer in 1994. She is a linguist whose research combines linguistics with an interest in visual communication, particularly in media texts. She was closely involved in the production of course materials for U214 Worlds of English, E301 The art of English, EA300 Children's Literature and E302 Language and Creativity.

Her main areas of academic interest are linguistics (particularly language and power, and sociolinguistics), semiotics, visual and verbal stylistics, and visual literacy, with particular interest in multi-modality in a variety of text types.  She currently oversees the undergraduate modules Worlds of English and The art of English.
