Dr Nina Teasdale

Honorary Research Associate



I completed my ESRC funded PhD in the Department of Sociology, at The University of Manchester at the end of 2007. My thesis was entitled: ‘Fragmented Sisterhood? Social Relations between Professional Women in the ‘Gendered’ Workplace’.

Since then I have worked as a researcher on funded projects with Prof Colette Fagan - Associate Dean for Research in the Faculty of Humanities - in relation to her role as the Co-Director of the European Work and Employment Research Centre, at The University of Manchester and member of the coordinating team and UK academic expert for the European Commission’s Expert Group on Gender and Employment.

While continuing to work with Prof Fagan, between August 2009 and January 2013, I began working in the Department of Sociology at The University of Leicester, contributing to a NHS Service Delivery Organisation (NHS SDO) project entitled  Mobilizing Identities: the shape and reality of middle and junior managers’ working lives’.

Following the completion of this project I have since moved to Glasgow and continue to work with Prof Fagan on gender equality issues, having obtained an Honorary Research position within the Department of Sociology at The University of Manchester.
