My academic and career profile straddles the disciplines of sociology and history. Following a History degree in the School of Social Sciences at Sussex University, I moved to Lancaster University where I completed a PhD on the cultural construction of girlhood in the Department of Education Research and then held a British Academy Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Centre for Women’s Studies. I joined the Department of Sociology at the University of Manchester in 1993.
I am a member of the British Sociological Association, the Women’s History Network, Gender & Education Association, and the Social History Society.
