Research Interests

My interests centre on emotions, culture, and agency. My doctoral research explores emotions in social movements through a case study of British radical feminist magazine Trouble and Strife, and I am particularly interested in the interdisciplinary dialogue between sociology and cultural studies around the cultural politics of emotion and affect. I specialise in qualitative documentary research methods, particularly involving archival documents of life.
