  • Overview:
    • I teach in the areas of social justice, gender, sexuality and feminist qualitative research. Theoretically and methodologically my work develops feminist poststructural, psychosocial, intersectional, and new materialist approaches to understanding subjectivity, affectivity and assembled power relations. My recent research explores feminism in secondary schools and young people's networked gender and sexual cultures and uses of social media. I have been part of collaborative research projects funded by UK, Canadian, Australian, USA and European funding bodies. My current research projects are: 'Documenting Digital Feminist Activism: Mapping Feminist Responses to New Media Misogyny and Rape Culture' (AHRC, with Dr Kaitlynn Mendes, University of Leicester and Dr Jessalynn Keller, University of East Anglia); "Gender Matters: Young people's experience of gender" (Office of Children's Commissioner, England, with Prof Emma Renold, Cardiff University, Prof Carolyn Jackson, Lancaster University and Dr Sara Bragg University of Brighton), and "Adolescent girls' negotiating sexualization" (Society for Research on Adolescence, with Prof Deborah Tolman, CUNY, New York, USA). I have acted as academic advisor and consultant for numerous organisations, including WOMANKIND worldwide, the NSPCC, the Anti-Bullying Alliance, and the UK Home Office 'Body Confidence Campaign'. My books and reports include: Rethinking Gendered Regulations and Resistances in Education (Routledge, 2011, edited); A Qualitative Study of Children, Young People and 'Sexting' (2012, London: NSPCC, with Rosalind Gill, Sonia Livingstone and Laura Harvey); Post-Feminist Education?: Girls and the sexual politics of schooling (Routledge, 2013); Deleuze and Research Methodologies, (EUP, 2013 edited with Rebecca Coleman); and Children, Sexuality, and Sexualisation (Palgrave, 2015, edited with Emma Renold and Danielle Egan).
