Profile

Biography

  • BSc Psychology (Lancashire Polytechnic)
  • MA Psychology (Open)
  • PhD Sociology (York)

I arrived in York in 2005 to undertake a part-time PhD. At the time, I was teaching applied psychology at St Martin’s College in Carlisle (now University of Cumbria). After two-years of travelling across the Pennines and back on a weekly basis, I decided to move to York in order to benefit from a more participatory role in the department. From 2007, then, I have been employed as a Teaching Fellow in Sociology, teaching mostly on the Sociology with Social Psychology pathway. Whilst at St. Martin’s, I was introduced to pedagogic uses of a virtual learning environment. This is a skill that I have been able to develop at York, where I am the department’s VLE officer.

My PhD combined my interests in interaction, identity and gender, and used Conversation Analysis to examine gendered person references in mundane interaction. In part, this work was a response to, and a critique of, the notion that gendered speakers always-already produce gendered talk.

Research

Overview

My main research interest is the application of Conversation Analysis to mundane and institutional settings. In particular:

  • Gender and language
  • References to persons and matters of turn-design more broadly
  • Pragmatic relationship between form and function of talk-in-interaction
  • Feminist work using CA: Complexities, challenges and compatibilities
