Projects per year
I joined the Department as a Lecturer in British Politics in 2015, having previously taught at the University of Bristol and the University of Birmingham.
My research addresses the intersection of social movement activity and policy and legislative processes. A key focus has been reproductive justice and abortion in the United Kingdom. My recent book, Beyond Pro-Life and Pro-Choice (Bristol University Press, 2020) traces the history of abortion politics from the passage of the 1967 Abortion Act, to contemporary debates around decriminalisation, disability rights and sex-selective abortion. I am currently undertaking a project on LGBTQIA politics in the UK, with a particular focus on the recent wave of anti-trans activism.
Previous projects have explored the gendered nature of risk governance, the concept of 'resilience' in social policy, and the status of women in universities.
