The Identities, Citizenship, Equalities and Migration research Centre (ICEMIC) is pleased to introduce its Alumni Research seminar series.
The seminar series will feature speakers who have completed their doctoral studies at the School of Sociology and Social Policy. The series will showcase their current and ongoing research, followed by a Q&A chaired by some of their former PhD supervisors.
We are pleased to announce that our next speaker is Dr Emma Craddock.
In this talk, Dr Emma Craddock will discuss her post-doctoral research journey so far, including the publication of her first monograph in 2020 (Living Against Austerity: A Feminist Investigation of Doing Activism and Being Activist), and her most recent research in the area of women’s health which includes being a Co-Investigator on an ESRC-funded project exploring Period Poverty during the Pandemic (alongside Dr Annalise Weckesser and Project Lead Gemma Williams), and her BCU pilot funded small-scale project evaluating the Women’s Health Network in Bradford.
Dr Emma Craddock is a Senior Lecturer in Health Research in the Post-Qualifying Healthcare Practice Department at Birmingham City University.
Emma completed her PhD in Sociology at the University of Nottingham at the start of 2017 (thesis titled: ‘Emotion and Gender in Local Anti-Austerity Activist Cultures’ under the supervision of Dr Anne-Marie Kramer and Dr Nick Stevenson). Her research utilised a feminist methodology and a combination of qualitative research methods to produce an in-depth exploration of the ‘making’ and ‘practising’ of local anti-austerity activist culture. It focused on gendered differences in lived and felt experiences of activism, the gendered barriers and exclusions that exist to doing activism and becoming an activist, the (gendered) role of ‘care’ within anti-austerity activism, how emotions motivate and sustain political participation, and the relationship between online and offline forms and spaces of activism. A research monograph that draws on this research - Living Against Austerity: A Feminist Investigation of Doing Activism and Being Activist was published in 2020.
