I’m a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University, UK, where I’ve contributed to modules on working with children and young people; communication and relationships; and health and social care. My research interests include young masculinities; fatherhood, masculinity and childcare; and faith and identity. I am currently principal investigator on an ESRC-funded project, exploring gender identities and practices in work with young men, in partnership with Action for Children.
I created this blog as a space to share my reflections on my research and teaching, to try out ideas, and to generate discussion. I’d welcome comments and feedback from anyone with an interest in the topics covered here.
