Elizabeth Ablett

I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Sociology, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. I have an MPhil in Sociology (Modern Society and Global Transformations) from the University of Cambridge and a BA (Hons) in Sociology from Warwick.

After working for a number of years in policy, press and public affairs roles I returned to academia to pursue a PhD exploring the links between women’s under-representation in local politics, organisational change, and the production of pro-women or feminist policy outcomes. As well as gender and politics, my broad research interests include gender and work, feminist theory and social theory.

I am an active member of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender as part of the committee team for the Graduate Seminar Series and through my involvement with a project to create the Centre's first archive. I am involved with the student organising committee for the research network Connecting Research on Employment and Work. As a member of a Social Theory research group led by Dr. Michael Hammond and Dr. Milena Kremakova, I work on a project developing an interdisciplinary online resource for social science researchers wishing to advance their understanding of social theory.

My doctoral research is supervised by Prof. Nickie Charles and Dr. Maria do Mar Pereira.
