Personal profile


Claire’s research is situated within the sociology of work and draws from gender and postcolonial organisation studies. She writes about how communities and organisations change when they centre the needs of marginalised communities by collectivising the micropolitical everyday acts of social reproduction.

Her current research makes present the under-examined aspect of ‘emotion’ in social reproduction theory and what it means for motherhood when ‘emotions’ feel like ‘work’. She is particularly interested in the impact of neoliberalism as a governing political rationality and the way this shapes individual and collective emotionality.

She is following the serious issues with childcare provision in the UK, in particular the rapid closures of private nurseries as a result of the Covid-19 epidemic and is thinking and acting collectively with other parents, workers and academics to formulate a response to this impending crisis.
She has taught on Masters and Undergraduate modules covering; Human Resource Management, Organisational Behaviour, International Business, Business Research Skills, and Gender at Work.
