Project Title: In their own words - An anthology of creative writing produced by women in prison, in conjunction with a narrative inquiry of female offender discourses and the creative writing|storytelling process within the context of prison reform.

My research is interdisciplinary with the focus on creative writing workshops with women in prison. I am interested in storytelling and writing - how this can explore the lived experiences of female offenders and provide a counter-narrative to the cultural constructions of punishment.

Research interests

*Creative writing pedagogy and storytelling as research methods.
* Cultural criminology
* Inter-culturality
* Lyrical criminology and sociology
* Narrative theory
* Socio-legal studies
* Women in prison and penal reform
