Personal profile

Research interests

Creative and critical research methodologies, particularly the blurring between the arts and social sciences. The formation of narrative identities and the representation of storied lives/lives at the margins. Of particular interest are various forms of writing and textual production as inquiry, and the development of particular forms of ethical knowhow that accompany collaborative writing as inquiry. Arts-based and emergent research approaches that become transformative within the lives of both researchers and the researched are also of interest. Previous projects have included inquiries into the lives of young men who have considered suicide; narratives of women whose lives have been touched by suicide; lives of young people in complex struggles with anorexia nervosa; lives of lesbians and lesbian parents; narratives of therapists entering the academy and of people using poetic writing; visual and digital images for both therapeutic and research purposes.
