Main details

Year graduated 2006
Department Sociology
Occupation Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Westminster

"Studying for the MA in Gender, Media & Culture at Goldsmiths has had a very profound and positive impact on my life, personally, politically and professionally. Having taken some gender studies classes as an undergraduate I was eager to develop my knowledge, and the range of options plus the opportunity for interdisciplinary study at Goldsmiths allowed me to do that. The teaching and support offered by the department was truly excellent, especially in terms of dissertation supervision. The work I did for that dissertation not only inspired me to get involved in feminist/queer cultural activism outside academia but also to pursue a PhD, which I completed at Goldsmiths in 2006.

Today I am a lecturer in Sociology at the University of Westminster where I lead several Gender Studies modules and strive to pass on the enthusiasm for a critical understanding of gender I encountered at Goldsmiths to a new generation of students."
