  • Lecturer
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society

I  completed my PhD at UCL Institute of Education, 1996-2000. I have also worked at the University of Brighton, University of Sussex, the Open University, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Research Summary

I have qualitative research methodology expertise and have researched and written in the areas of child and youth cultures; gender, and 'sexualisation' debates; pedagogies, including the role of media in relationships, sexuality and health education; young people as media audiences; student and youth “voice”, citizenship and participation; creative research methods.  I am the co-editor of the journal Children and Society.

I was a co-investigator on a Methodological Innovation project which became Researching Everyday Childhoods: Time, Technology and Documentation in a Digital Age (Rachel Thomson, Liam Berriman, Sara Bragg 2018. London: Bloomsbury). I was also co-investigator with  Emma Renold, Jessica Ringrose and Carolyn Jackson on Young People’s Experiences of Gender for the Office of the Children’s Commissioner England.  Recently I have worked with Chris Bonell, Ruth Ponsford and the Sex Education Forum on Positive Choices, a whole-school Relationships and Sex Education programme.

In 2020  I was an advisor on DfE materials to support the implementation of statutory RSE, worked with Brook / CEOP on Digital Romance 2.0  on LGBTQ+ online relationships (led by Rachel Thomson at University of Sussex), helped draft a position paper on Gender and education for the Women's Budget Group with Tiffany Page (IOE) and Vanita Sundaram (York) and was a consultant on a Wellspring report on child and youth participation.  I have also worked as an advisor to Stonewall on their gender equity training, and to South West Grid for Learning developing RSE materials on pornography for parents, schools and students.   I convened an ESRC seminar series New Practices for New Publics (2015-18) on theories of social practice and civil society.
