Is that an IDIOM?

Nat and I have just finished editing the new edition of VATE's journal IDIOM. It's called 'Consuming culture, Creating cuirriculum' and is a collection of papers arising from a conference we organised late in 2005. It's being printed as I write and should be mailed to VATE members and schools early in term two (ie next week). If you are interested in a copy, then join VATE you bludgers! (or email me and I'll see what I can do ... )
