Gender, Higher Education, Space and Time


This research explores how students and staff carve out space and time for higher education. Academic action is considered in relation to the interconnected spheres of paid work, home, leisure and community.

The research draws on the sociologies of space and time and reflects on the changing landscape of higher education, gender and work. The work is linked to both external and internal research networks including, Gender and Education, the Women in Higher Education Network, the Leeds Beckett Gender Network.
