This article explores the concept of ‘Professional Memory’ in English teaching. It is argued that English teacher memories, analysed through a collective lens and in particular conjunctures, can provide powerful evidence of practitioner-led reform and development. Such evidence can be used to challenge the existing theoretical framework of English teaching, and the dominant discourses surrounding the subject. Keywords: Professional memory, collective memory, history of English teaching, life histories, conjunctures
