Research interests

Jackie Clarke's research interests reflect her cross-disciplinary training in History and French Studies, with a particular focus on twentieth and twenty-first-century France.

She has written on various aspects of interwar, postwar and contemporary France including:

  • work and workers in French society and culture
  • contemporary writing about work and the 'end of industry'
  • consumption and consumer culture
  • deindustrialisation and its social and cultural legacies
  • memory and nostalgia
  • the history of experts and ‘technocrats’ in France

She is particularly interested in questions of class and gender and is a member of the Centre for Gender History

Her current book-length project uses the emblematic French domestic appliance brand as lens through which to explore questions about work, consumption and subjectivity in France since the 1950s.

She is a Co-Investigator in the major transnational partnership project DéPOT (Deindustrialization and the Politics of Our Time), led by Professor Steven High and a Co-Editor of the Routledge International Handbook of Deindustrialisation Studies (forthcoming).

She is also one of the international advisors on the CONDE project (Confronting Decline. Challenges of Deindustrialization in Western Societies since the 1970s) led by Prof. Andreas Wirsching in Munich.

In 2018-2020, she led the RSE-funded After the Factory network on gender and deindustrialisation.

Supervision

Jackie welcomes enquiries from prospective students interested in pursuing research on the history of work, consumption and deindustrialisation (in any country) and on any aspect of contemporary French history and society.  Many PhD projects today cut across several fields or disciplines, rather than sitting within the expertise of a single supervisor.  Jackie has previously collaborated with colleagues in supervising projects that draw on approaches from sociology, ethnography, translation studies and cultural studies as well as history.

If you are interested in applying for a PhD, please get in touch to discuss your ideas. Jackie is happy to work with prospective applicants in order to help them develop a strong research proposal.
