Projects

Alongside my research and teaching, I support knowledge dissemination projects in various capacities, from research and design to development and implementation.

Clayoquot Lives: An Ecofeminist Story Web // 

Clayoquot Lives is an online archive of materials related to the 1993 Peace Camp in Clayoquot Sound, Canada. The online archive launched in 2016 at the University of Edinburgh and features Dr Niamh Moore’s original research from the 1990s. It was developed by Dr Niamh Moore, and executed in collaboration with myself, Dr Nikki Dunne, Dr Martina Karels. We are now in the process of writing a DIY Academic Arching book, under contract with Palgrave, due out this year (2021).

Knowledge Stitch // 

In 2021 I started Knowledge Stitch as a space to house some work-in-progress research initiatives related to sociology and beyond: with OMyGluten, I am interested in mapping and understanding the dramas of the the gluten-free diet, and whether/how these impact the everyday lives of people living with celiac disease as well as those navigating non-celiac gluten sensitivities; with ResearchCasts, I am interested in academic podcast amplification, sharing academic research, grounded in theory and practice, to encourage the use of academic podcasts in the classroom. 

Social Alterations // 

Sharing research is something I have been passionate about for a while. Starting in 2009 and up until about when my PhD started taking up all of my time, I worked on Social Alterations with Dr Nadira Lamrad. No longer active, Social Alterations was an online research dissemination project, sharing news and resources, designing and building lesson plans, workshops and activities related to responsible fashion, and the social and environmental challenges at work within the global fashion and apparel supply chain. 

Other // 

In 2014 I built the project website Marginal Populations, Social Mobilisation & Development on behalf of its research team. The website featured research carried out through a thematic partnership between the University of Edinburgh and the TATA Institute of Social Sciences.
