Personal profile

Research interests

I am Professor of Higher Education and Gender, and Director of Research, in the Department of Education. My research utilizes feminist, new materialist and posthumanist theories and methodologies to explore gendered inequalities, spatial practices, and staff and students’ participation in a range of higher educational sites. I have a keen interest in using trans- and interdisciplinary methodological innovation to further gendered social justice in education. My latest books are Taylor, C. A., Hughes, C. & Ulmer, J. (Eds.) (2020) Transdisciplinary Feminist Research: Innovations in Theory, Method and Practice. London: Routledge; Taylor, C. A. and Bayley, A. (Eds.) (2019) Posthumanism and Higher Education: Reimagining Pedagogy, Practice and Research. London: Palgrave Macmillan, and Taylor, C. A., Abbas, A. and Amade-Escot, C. (Eds.) (2019) Gender in Learning and Teaching: Feminist Dialogues across International Boundaries. London: Routledge. I am co-editor of the journal Gender and Education, and I serve on the editorial boards of Teaching in Higher Education and Critical Studies in Teaching and Learning. My research interests include: 

  • Space, place, materialities and affect
  • Gender and power
  • Posthumanist and new material feminist theory, methodology and research practices 
  • Post-qualitative research practices
  • Feminist academic praxis 
  • Student engagement practice and ethics
  • Higher education transitions
  • Creative, sensory, and collaborative research practices
  • Academic writing practices
