I am Professor in Childhood Studies at the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University, Wales and the author of Girls, Boys and Junior Sexualities (Routledge 2005), Children, Sexuality and the Sexualisation of Culture (Palgrave 2015). Working with feminist, queer and post-humanist approaches my research explores gendered and sexual subjectivities across diverse institutional sites and public spaces across the young life course (2013-18).
