Biography

For the past twenty years, my research has focused broadly on the role of moral meanings in shaping social life. Most recently, this has led me to examine the moral meanings invested in historical welfare interventions into the lives of children which removed them from their families or home communities. I have also previously written on forms of the ‘sacred’ in modern life, the notion of a growing, new spirituality beyond the boundaries of traditional religious institutions, and the ways in which media and popular culture operate as sources of meaning in contemporary society.
