Dr. Michelle Kempson

Welcome to my eportfolio. I am an Early Career Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study at the University of Warwick. Broadly, my research asks questions about how young people engage with culture. In particular, I am interested in how different socioeconomic backgrounds and circumstances influence young people's cultural participation. I recently obtained my PhD, entitled 'I just call myself a DIY feminist': Subjectivity, Subculture and the Feminist Zine, from the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender at the University of Warwick.
