- Building digital skills in teams and organisations
- Auditing your organisation’s digital footprint
- Improving and refining your online identity
- Assessing the impact of your online activity
- Communicating your research to non-specialist audiences
- Using digital tools to improve research collaboration
- Building an audience and ensuring your visibility online
- Planning and implementing a dissemination strategy for your project
These are just suggestions. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss working together.
I’ve been a regular blogger for over a decade, writing many thousands of blog posts in this time, including guest posts across a range of websites. I’m a prolific podcaster, having produced nearly 200 podcasts in a range of capacities. I’m founding editor of The Sociological Imagination, one of the world’s most popular Sociology websites. I’m a former editor of the LSE’s British Politics & Policy blog, part of the LSE Public Policy Group’s award winning engagement initiatives. I’m responsible for The Sociological Review’s social media presence, during which time we’ve become one of the most visible scholarly journal on social media.
I’ve solely or jointly co-ordinated the digital activity of many other projects and organisations in the past: The British Sociological Association’s Postgraduate Forum, The British Sociological Association’s Digital Sociology Group, The British Sociological Association’s Realism and Social Research Group, The British Sociological Association’s Theory Group, Sociology@Warwick, The Digital Change Global Priority Programme, The Asexuality Studies Network, The Digital Social Science Forum, The Centre for Social Ontology, The Data Science Lab, The International Journal of Social Research Methodology, Big Data & Society, The Sexuality Studies Association, The Heads & Professors of Sociology, Campaign for the Public University and The Faculty of Social Sciences at Warwick.
My own research has always been driven by a desire to engage with wider publics. My work has been featured in the Guardian, Vice, BBC News, The Atlantic, The Times, Huffington Post, The Observer, The Herald, The Metro US, BBC News Magazine, The Scotsman, Wired, Glamour, The Straits Times, Guardian Higher Education and many smaller online and print outlets internationally. I’ve been interviewed by BBC Radio 4, BBC 3, Newstalk, RTL Belgium and BBC Coventry & Warwickshire. I’ve also regularly consulted with journalists, curators and activists who have sought my support as a researcher. This has included co-developing educational workshops grounded in my research findings.
