I have conducted 14 externally-funded collaborative research projects/consultancies (total funding of over £8 million for research and €12 million in EC teaching and scholarship funding as part of the European GEMMA consortium). Whilst the locus of these studies has been relatively broad in scope, for example from the GlobalGRACE (£3.729m UKRI Global Challenges Research Funding) and the Gender & Cultures of Equality in Europe (€3.719m Horizon 2020 GRACE, Marie S. Curie Project), to young people’s sexuality and life choices, to Girls’ Rights in the UK, and to environmental politics in Costa Rica, all are in the fields of gender, anthropology, social policy and development (GAD) in UK and international contexts. I am currently the co-author and co-director of the UKRI GCRF GlobalGRACE Project consortium which draws together 14 academic and NGO partner organisations across 8 countries in a network of South-South and South-North partners that we hope will become a model of and platform for mobilizing the creative and critical resources of academics, artists and practitioners to address shared sustainable development goals. Working with partners in the UK, Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines and South Africa, GlobalGRACE employs arts based practices, curatorial and multi-sensory research, digital and literary engagement and public exhibitions to investigate the production of cultures of equality and enable gender positive approaches to wellbeing internationally. GlobalGRACE responds directly to the UN’s global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UK AID strategy focusing on two key linked priorities identified by the Global Challenges Research Fund: reducing gender inequalities and enhancing health and wellbeing. GlobalGRACE builds capacity through employing researchers in the UK, Bangladesh, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines and South Africa to work alongside more established academic co-investigators at different career stages in partner universities.
