Helen is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Bath Spa University. She joined Bath Spa in January 2017, having previously worked at Surrey, Northampton and Kingston universities.
Helen’s research interests and publications focus on the following intersecting areas: ‘race’, ethnicity and migration; the relationship between identity, belonging and place; ethnic inclusion and exclusion in rural spaces; the racialised, gendered and classed nature of rural intercultural relationships; theories and lay understandings of ‘community’, and qualitative (especially ethnographic) research methods. Her doctoral research on ‘whiteness’, class and English village life in the context of Eastern European migration was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. She is a member of Bath Spa’s interdisciplinary Global Citizenship and Identities research group.
