I have developed writing strategies such as ‘the thinkingwriting subject’, post/academic writing’, ‘the untimely academic novella’ and ‘situated writing’. I am founder of the international interdisciplinary network Reflexive Academic Writing Methodologies (RAW) 2008-2017. Research themes include: media narratives on rape, gender, space and communication, and publicly staged conversations with researchers. My recent work focuses on glocalisation, social work and methodological re-shaping inspired by cultural geography, creative writing and the arts. Most recent publications: Social Work in a Glocalised World (with Bryant 2017), Situated Writing as Theory and Method. The Untimely Academic Novella. (Routledge 2019).
I lead and coordinate the masters’ education in social work, and internationalisation at the social work programme. My knowledge base and profile as a teacher in social work is gender- and intersectionality, narrative and art-based methods. I teach mainly in the theory of science and qualitative methods, academic writing, global and transnational social work and sustainability issues.
