Research interests

Research interests

Gender and social work, social work history, social work profession, research with children, reflexivity in research, feminist research practice, diaspora, migration & transnationalism.

I have conducted research in a number of social work-related fields over the last 30 years or so,  including working for many years on research focused on children and HIV. A career highpoint was Scottish singer Annie Lennox launching one of my research reports on children affected by HIV in Scotland in 2009, and being awarded an honorary degree at the same time. See https://tinyurl.com/jkjtk5zy

Two other research projects of continuing relevance are the Talking and Listening to Children project on social workers' communication with children, conducted in 2018 and 2019 (see https://talkingandlisteningtochildren.co.uk/) and the Social Work Centenary project, which celebrated the history of social work education at the University of Edinburgh and shone a light on social work and social policy history in Scotland, the UK and beyond (see http://www1.socialwork.ed.ac.uk/centenary).

In retirement, I am researching Scottish social history through a project on emigration from Dundee to Australia in the middle of the nineteenth century. More information here:

'Emigration: a personal, social and cultural journey', University of Edinburgh blog, 2019-2020. (https://blogs.ed.ac.uk/emigration-blog)

I have also continued to work on the history  of social work education.  A project, 'Advisers, Advocates and Activists', sponsored by the Wellcome Trust, was completed in early 2021. This project was located in the university library's special collections, and catalogued and archived 100 years of Social Studies at The University of Edinburgh. A blog outlines some of the findings from this most worthwhile project.

Topics interested in supervising

I am especially interested in supervising historical projects and those focused on gender, feminism and women in social work.
