PhD researcher in Women's Studies, specific areas of study female clergy and gender and performance, University of York

Currently a PhD researcher at the Centre for Women's Studies at the University of York, having recently completed an MA in Women's Studies. My PhD specialism is in gender and religion, focusing on female clergy in the Church of England, and how women are negotiating and influencing the androcentric nature of the structure of the Church and its language and symbols.

As a feminist researcher, and have worked on other research projects including women in the music industry. As a long-standing professional performer, with an interest in research as practice, I write, in a number of formats, about cultural discourses and gender representation.
