Jane has a keen interest in learning and development. She has undertaken the Profolio course and Personal Skills Course for DPhil students at the University of Sussex.
Jane's research combines many areas including sociology, cultural studies, political theory, business ethics, corporate social responsibility and sustainability. Her PhD research explores societal perceptions of social responsibility and consumer credit in light of the economic recession, focusing on three key stakeholders; corporations, the government and consumers. The research is also embedded in labelling theory as it observes societal perceptions of debt and the way in which debtors are labelled as 'deviant'.
