Dawn Mannay

Lecturer - Cardiff University

I am a Lecturer in Social Science (Psychology) at Cardiff University and also hold the posts of Associate Lecturer at the Open University and Visiting Lecturer at the University of South Wales; as well as being involved with the Women Making a Difference Program. My research interests revolve around class, education, gender, geography, generation, violence and inequality: and I employ participatory, visual, creative and narrative methods in my work. I am particularly interested in mapping, collaging and photo-elicitation and sand boxing.
