  • Lecturer- Sociology of the Media and Higher Education
  • IOE - Education, Practice & Society

Dr Tiffany Page joined the UCL Institute of Education in May 2020.

Previously Tiffany was a Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Cambridge from 2017-2020, and was an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Media and Communications at Goldsmiths, co-convening the MA in Gender, Media and Culture from 2016-2017.

Originally from New Zealand, Tiffany completed a BA in Feminist Studies and Psychology, and a MSc in Industrial and Organisational Psychology, at the University of Canterbury. Her dissertation investigated how power operates within a university during organisational change. After graduating Tiffany worked as an organisational change management consultant at Accenture in New Zealand and Singapore. In 2011 Tiffany came to the UK to undertake a PhD in cultural studies at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her research conceptualised vulnerability as an ethical, political and methodological orientation through an in-depth examination of media reports of two asylum seekers who set their bodies on fire.

In 2016 Tiffany co-founded The 1752 Group, a research and lobby organisation addressing staff-student sexual misconduct in the UK higher education sector. The organisation conducts research, publishes policy and sector guidance, and partners nationally and internationally with academics, universities and sector organisations.

Research Summary
Tiffany's current research involves an examination of the relationships between vulnerability and how individuals experience violence. To date, this includes two areas: 1) an investigation of the ethics of cross-cultural research on exile through an in-depth case study of media accounts of extreme self-harm in the setting fire to one’s own body, or self-immolation; and 2) the relevance and role of vulnerability in determining institutional action in relation to inequalities in higher education.

Tiffany has a commitment to academic research being connected to social change that is located where it matters to individuals and communities, and this informs her research and social change work. As an interdisciplinary researcher, Tiffany’s interests include the areas and intersections of vulnerability, gender inequalities and institutional change, which span the disciplines of sociology, gender studies, media and cultural studies, and postcolonial studies. Tiffany has a strong interest in methods and how vulnerability can make epistemic, methodological and pedagogic interventions.
