She has a multi-disciplinary background, having studied history, philosophy, gender studies, sociology, sport and leisure studies. Past research has included an investigation into the representation of reality and authenticity in film merchandise, the use of humour to address racial stereotyping in t-shirt design, digital immortality through social networking sites, and a social experiment to test theories of exchange and social value creation in a contemporary urban environment.

In addition, we found that rather than a structured trajectory driven by male career goals, for young men in some occupations this prospective lifecourse chronology may be planned and operationalised by their female partners, particularly when they too share a commitment to personal career development. Written from a functionalist perspective, his schema nonetheless enabled subsequent work on the liminal or middle stage of a rite of passage, a time and place within which identities can be ritually dismantled and others formed Turner, 1969, 1974. What we argue is that heterosexual narratives can give clues as to the discourses which resource everyday heterosexual life and to the exclusionary narrative strategies which sustain heterosexuality as a residual category, one sustained through the silencing of that which it is not. Hockey, 2011, Palgrave and Rock Climbing: The Ultimate Guide 2013, Greenwood. This paper presents the life history of one older woman, Jean, and engages with feminist debates about the nature of women's agency within institutionalised heterosexuality.
I later moved to the University of Newcastle, where I was Lecturer in Sociology. The formation of an international network through this visiting scholar programme, via two colloquia, will establish a gateway for future collaborative research between York, and the universities of Sheffield and Amsterdam. This will be submitted to the Wellcome Trust in 2016. Supported by David Brooks University of Durham , she carried out an empirical undergraduate dissertation and went on to develop this work in her PhD The Human Encounter with Death.

I have been Visiting Professor at three European Universities, the University of Bielefeld, Germany, University of Karlstad, Sweden and the University of Turin, Italy, working in the areas of men, masculinities and gender relations, heterosexualities and fashion and footwear cultures. When an object such as a 'trainers' shifts from a commoditised sphere to a local or private sphere Hockey et al. Women in Management Review 17: 131- 41. In addition, however, we saw how the fluidity and flux of feelings meant that they could not always be contained within one or the other sphere, sometimes leaking across the boundary in problematic ways, sometimes being expressed or managed in settings which had not initially stimulated them, yet where support could be offered, potentially in unpredictable ways. Gender and Society 22: 455- 76. What it argues is that transition can be as much about connection and continuity, as separation and difference. Coinciding with an upsurge in new forms of feminist politics, this timely publication confirms the continuing relevance of gender and women's studies.
How men situate themselves in time, therefore — the role of memory and imagination, of subjective notions of the past and future — are all under-theorised aspects of the masculine experience. Berkeley: University of California Press. The book is divided into three sections. She is interested in the relationship between cultural discourses, social structures such as gender, class, ethnicity and the experiential ways that we come know ourselves, others, the environment and the wider world. Here we move on to a critical discussion of theories of the body, especially in relation to masculinity, making the relationship between masculine embodiment and individual agency a key focus.
Thus, the nature of the boundary between public and private spheres can be seen as constituted differently for men and women of different ages and social class backgrounds Whitehead, 2002. In relation to shoes, Rachel is particularly interested in how the technologies of different shoes mediate movement in and through different environments; how this can create and develop different physical competencies and various forms of comportment. Chapter 3 made time recalled by older men its focus, but here we engage with prospective time and the configurations of masculinity which are imagined and indeed planned for. This chapter develops the theme of emotional labour introduced in Chapter 13, focussing more directly on the intersubjective nature of emotionality. I returned in 1985 and persuaded the University to put on just one course to which around 60 students came. I welcome enquiries from prospective PhD students in my research areas as broadly interpreted.
A feminist theorising of the sociology of the everyday and the extraordinary is central to my research interests here. Hegemonic masculinity is not something that an individual person or group of people have or do not have ; it is a project in which individuals engage, with greater or lesser degrees of success, and thus there are a multiplicity of possible masculinities in operation at any one time. What this chapter addresses is the place of emotion within the research process itself and we explore three aspects of its contribution to understanding: emotionality as a source of information about participants which might help explain other dimensions of their working and domestic lives; as a strategy for securing access to the relationships and rapport without which data cannot be gathered; and as a means of participating in the flow of everyday lives rather than simply observing them. This is despite the fact that heterosexuality itself is very much embedded in accounts of social and political participation, our understandings of self and the world we inhabit. She further argues, as already noted, that the conceptual frameworks we use to theorise relationships between human beings tend to be reliant upon a naturalised notion of heterosexuality. Thus, in the following chapters we examine the male body in motion, situated within the materialities of particular times and spaces and in relation to a whole range of embodied others: female partners, friends and family members; male and female colleagues; clients; and members of the public.

What happens when objects leave the market place to enter the consumer's private or domestic sphere? Draper 2005 'Beyond the Womb and the Tomb: Dis Embodiment and the Life Course', Body and Society, vol. To pursue this enquiry we drew on theories of identity — and in particular gendered identity — which treat it as an outcome of socially and materially grounded practice. There is limited evidence here to support Giddens's 1992 claim that sex has been removed from the power of the phallus, at least within heterosexual relationships. She is co editor, with D. Human Relations 51: 969- 1005.
