Current

At Durham I currently convene two modules: Social Theory and the Politics of Knowledge (3rd year undergraduate) and Qualitative Methods in Social Science (Master in Social Research Methods). I also co-convene Modern and Contemporary Sociological Theory.

Modern and Contemporary Sociological Theory (MCST) is a mandatory 20-credit module for second-year students. I co-convene this module with a colleague, so my part is only a half of the syllabus. Qualitative Methods in Social Science is a 10-credit postgraduate module which gives students theoretical and practical knowledge of advanced social science research. The pages here contain a ‘taster’ of some of my teaching on these modules, but note that full module (course) syllabi, reading lists, materials, and lecture recordings are only available to registered Durham students via Duo.

In addition to teaching, I also supervise undergraduate dissertations, and welcome inquiries from PhD students. I convene the Social and Political Theory reading group (for postgraduate students and staff) and help run the HESI (Higher Education and Social Inequalities) seminar series.

I am also Department of Sociology’s Erasmus and International Exchange coordinator.
