Prospective PhD students

I am available to supervise PhD students at the Department of Social Sciences and the Centre for Human/Animal Studies at Edge Hill University  in the following areas:

- Sociological approaches to understanding climate change, especially in relation to food practices, gender and/or childhood.

Gender studies - broadly construed, but especially environmental dimensions, and projects related to a critical/feminist focus on masculinities. Also gendered dimensions of bodily aesthetics e.g. intersections of the sociology of the body and gender studies.

- Critical Animal Studies e.g. sociology of human/animal relations, especially the political economy of the animal agri industries, examinations of the animal-industrial complex and the sociology of veganism.
