Dr Sally Hines
Associate Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies
I am an Associate Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies in the School of Sociology and Social Policy and the Director of the Centre of Interdisciplinary Gender Studies (CIGS). I work in the areas of gender, sexuality, intimacy and the body; addressing transformations in these identity practices and looking at how these shifts feed into theoretical debates around citizenship, recognition and social movements. The focus on the intersections – and disconnections - of gender and sexuality are brought together in my body of work on transgender.
My current research focuses on the interplay between social, cultural and legal shifts around gender and sexuality. I am particularly interested in the role of social movements in changing gendered and sexual understandings and practices, especially around questions of ‘difference’. I have recently finished working on an ESRC grant (2008-2010), as Principal Investigator, entitled 'Gender Diversity, Recognition and Citizenship', the findings of which will form a forthcoming book 'Gender Diversity, Recognition and Citizenship: Towards a Politics of Difference (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).
I convene two modules in the School of Sociology and Social Policy: Sociology of Gender at Level 2 and Sexualities and Society at Level 3. At Masters Level I convene Queer(y)ing Sexualities in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies, where I also oversee and contribute to the wider MA programme.
I am Postgraduate Research Tutor in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies.
I currently supervise PhD students who are working on the following: Masculinities, Emotion and Music; Young Adults’ Sexualities within Schools; FtM Embodiment and Identities; Masculinities and War; Gender, Sexualities and Sex Education; Young Adults, Housing and Relationships; Asexuality.
I welcome future applications in the following areas:
- Transgender and gender diversity
- The body
- Citizenship, recognition and social movements
