Sally's research has ranged over different contemporary themes of 'otherness', and cultures and identities of otherness. She has expertise in exclusion and its effects, social, emotional, and cultural.
Her main disciplinary focus lies in Cultural Studies - particularly in how social identities are experienced. She has strong interests in sexuality, gender, and class, narrative, space, spiritualities, shame, paranormality and resilience.
In 2008-9 Sally was the Principal Investigator for a significant AHRC/ESRC funded project in the Religion and Society Programme, called 'Queer Spiritual Space(s): An investigation into the practices of non-hegemonic queer spiritual communities using case studies, (Quakers, Buddhists, Findhorn Community (New Age), Muslims, Michigan Womyns Festival (Wiccan and others), and the 'non-aligned spiritually curious' online)'. The book was published in 2010 by Ashgate, co-authored with Kath Browne and Andrew Yip, as 'Queer Spiritual Spaces: Sexuality and Sacred Places'. The outcomes also included designing a community based resource, a conference, and an interactive web page, to stimulate inter-faith dialogue.

Sally also continues to write about popular narratives and identities following an early interest in crime fiction and feminist narratives.
Sally completed a 4 year MSc in Cognitive Psychotherapy at the University of Brighton, and she welcomes collaborative research projects in Psychosocial Studies, and the politics and culture of emotion, - particularly around issues of social exclusion.
