Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline


My research focuses on gendered embodiment - how do ideas about gender impact the ways in which we use our bodies and understand our self? How does this in turn impact power relations within different settings? I have particular interest and expertise in the ways in which gendered embodiments are molded and/or 'undone' within sporting contexts, specifically mixed-sex karate. 

In doing so, I take a micro-sociological approach to understand and explore power relations. I have used multiple qualitative research methods to do so including sensory ethnographic methods, autoethnography, and photo-elicitation interviews


Desired research direction

I look to continue to explore embodied experiences of gender and social class, and how these embodiments relate to power relations. From this broad interest I have two key focuses:

  1. Violence against women survivors' experiences of embodiment
  2. Working class embodiment within FE/HE

I am excited by research methods that enable participants voices and knowledge to florish, and for participants to gain something meaning from the experience. I look to incorporate action research methods and collaborative research methods in future research projects.
