Research interests

Research interests

Intimacy; historical and cultural shifts in practices of intimacy; globalisation and personal life; relationships, the environment and sustainable life-styles; families, households, inter-generational relationships; personal life across the life-course; identity issues; European identity; social change; methods of social research; Scottish oral history; sexuality; sexual offences and gender violence; relationships and 'othering'.

Much of my research is done with CRFR (Centre for Research on Families and Relationships).

Topics interested in supervising

Globalisation and social change in personal life and/or in doing gender. This could include transnational families, families and migration, care chains, international adoption, sex tourism, mail order brides, prostitution etc. Any aspect of personal life, intimacy, gender and generational relationships, friendships, family, sexual relationships, sexuality and/or social change. 'Greening of families', anything to do with personal relationships and practices consequential for climate change or sustainabillity, environmental issues, biodiversity and orientations to the natural world or friendship and famil-like relationships with species other than humans. Have also done socio-legal work on rape and can supervise on gender violence. I have also have a more general interest in identity and have done work on European identity and try to keep an eye on debates about global citizenship & cosmopolitianism and would be happy to supervise in this area but perhaps as a second supervisor.

Biographical statement

Supervise PhD students across a wide range of topics conducting research with both qualitative and quantitative methods in areas that overlap with my interest. One of the founding co-directors of CRFR. An editor of Families, Relationships and Societies and co-editor of the Palgrave series on Studies in Family and Intimate Life.

Recently participated in a project led by George Palattiyl on the impact of covid-19 lockdown on families of care home residents. Ongoing legacies of earlier work include: ''breadth and depth method' for analysis across large volumes of qualitative data, with Emma Davidson, Ros Edwards, and Susie Weller, ESRC National Centre for Research Methods; with Adele Lebano on 'Futures and Family: Italy, Spain and the UK' a qualitative project complementing Centre for Population Change demographic and quantitative work; and with Antonella Sorace, Kay Tisdall, Tracey Peace-Hughes and others on family, friends and bilingualism. Additional, I am a trustee of Befriending Networks Scotland and via Transition Edinburgh South, I support Gracemount Community Garden which enables people to grow and eat local food,  as part of my commitment to lower carbon futures and belief that families and relationships need to be part of bringing it about.

My back catalogue leaves ongoing interests in the topics of living alone, Growing up in Scotland, for example, analysing data on grandparenting with Warner and Bradshaw, children's experience of family change, identity including European Identity, young Muslim's experiences of racism and religious intolerance in Scotland, gender violence including the effectiveness of legislation governing the use of evidence in Scottish sexual offences trials with Burman, Scottish oral history.
