Anne-Marie's research interests are broadly located in the sociology of personal life and the family, gender, identity and memory.
Her current research explores the meaning and consequences of the current boom in genealogy in the UK for the individuals undertaking it, their families, and British society more broadly. She has recently completed a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship in this area, focussing on four related areas: genealogy and personal life; genealogy in the media; genealogy and the archive; and genetic genealogy. This is currently being written up as a book, 'Kinship and Genealogy', for Palgrave Macmillan as well as in peer-reviewed journal articles. Her previous ESRC-funded doctoral and postdoctoral research has analysed the impact of contemporary Polish debate around reproductive politics on Polish national identity and democratisation, as well as exploring the role medical professionals play in regulating access to abortion in Poland.
