PhD in Social Anthropology, Manchester University, 1990.
I came to Manchester University as a lecturer in social anthropology in 1999, having previously held posts at the Public Health Research and Resource Centre, Salford and the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Keele University.
Visiting Scholar at the University of Balamand, Beirut (2007, 2008 and 2009)
Professeure Invitée, at the École des Haute Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris (2006).
Visiting Research Fellow, Department of Anthropologia, Universitat Autonoma, Barcelona (1998).
Visiting Professor, Women’s Studies, University of California at Berkeley (1998).
At Manchester I am linked to CRESC and EastbordNet. I convened and directed a collaborative EU funded project on the Public Understanding of Genetics (PUG), and more recently received an award form the Council for British Research in the Levant for a pilot study on religion and biotechnology in Lebanon. My current research also continues a long-standing ethnographic interest in the anthropology of Britain, kinship and class and I am currently researching the burgeoning interest in family history and genealogical research in Britain, and beyond.
