Academic interests

Current research interests include the relationship between individual agency and social structure, issues of self-formation, pedagogy, education, and the anthropology and ethnography of art and education. This includes an interest in creativity, the figure of the artist, processes of institutionalisation, and disciplinary socialisation.

My research is based on long-term ethnographic fieldwork in (and around) an art-school in Britain.
