I welcome applications for DPhil study from students with interests in the following areas/topics:

  • the politics and ethnography of struggles around sexual rights and gender expression in non-western contexts;
  • ethnographic studies of masculinities in relation to politics and the economy, i.e. masculinities in the formal political arena, men's engagement with efforts to transform gendered inequities in the labour market and so on;
  • what feminists can learn from sex workers about men, money and empowerment;
  • what contemporary feminist theory might have to offer gender and development thinking and practice;
  • what effects heteronormativity and the (re)-enforcement of the gender binary in gender and development policy and practice has on women's, men's and trans people's experiences of development intervention.
