Director SIIBS, University of Sheffield

I am co-director of The Shiloh Project, a joint initiative set up by staff from the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds and Auckland (NZ). It is committed to fostering research into the phenomenon of rape culture, the complex and at times contentious relationships that exist between rape culture and religion, considering the various ways religion can both participate in and contest rape culture discourses and practices.

I am co-editor of three volumes on rape culture, published by Palgrave Macmillan.
