Research interests

My main research interests lie in micro-sociological and feminist understandings of everyday life with a focus on gender, leisure practices and qualitative methodologies.

My previous research explored the intentional, life-sharing Camphill community network; with more recent research developing the sociology of mindsport through the case study of the card game bridge.

I am currently engaged in a research project titled Waste. Water. Walking. that investigates the role of leisure practices to personal and social wellbeing in green and blue spaces, alongside thinking through how dirt and disgust are encountered and understood. The project employs walking and swimming as method with ethnofiction and situated writing approaches.

 

Research Areas

  • Micro-sociological approaches to everyday life
  • Dirty Leisure – defecation, dirt and pollution in green and blue spaces
  • Leisure practices – swimming and walking
  • Feminist conceptualisations of leisure, nature, human/animal relations and situated writing.
  • Qualitative methodologies – ethnography, creative methods, ethnofiction, poetry, diaries and interviews.

I welcome applications for doctoral supervision in any of these areas.
