Biography

I have worked at the University of Sussex since 2007, first in the Centre for Continuing Education before joining the School of Media, Film and Music in 2013. I am Professor in Cultural Studies with a specialism in Life Writing, Oral History and Audio/Visual Life Story-telling, and I currently lead on cultural industry studies in the University, with a focus on social, heritage and ethical enterprise. I also direct the University's Centre for Life History and Life Writing Research.

Before that, I was Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Culture at the University of Exeter, 2000-2007, after beginning my lecturing career at Sussex 1999-2000. I have also been a Research Fellow at the Mass Observation Archive from 1997-1999, and Branch Secretary to Brighton Women’s Workers’ Educational Association, 1993-98. I studied English literature at the University of Cambridge and Women’s Studies at the University of York in the 1980s.
