Using posthuman and feminist materialist theories to examine professional identities within Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) in Scotland and beyond.
I am also interested in how posthuman and feminist materialist thinking can help re-imagine research methodology to include materialities, affect and relationalities, working towards a more affirmative, generative and socially just research praxis.
