Dr

Maree Martinussen

 

I am an interdisciplinary, feminist, identity studies scholar. I am interested in equity policy and practices in higher education, social class and the sociology of personal relationships, particularly friendships.

I also have an interest in qualitative methodologies, especially developing discourse analytic methods that make use of the study emotion and affect. I am keen to forward an agenda for studying embodied, affective experiences in highly empirical ways, that showcase people’s active meaning-making. I get joy from finding patterns in the little moments that make up mundane, everyday life, but I also find this approach useful for the social justice projects to which I orient. With my current research project, carried out through a McKenzie Postdoctoral Fellowship, I am examining how privilege and disadvantage operate in Australian universities, as they intersect with gender and ethnicity. Women from low socioeconomic and ethnic minority backgrounds provide case study groups, with whom I will explore if and how university cultures perpetuate class inequities, and/or foster the strengths of diverse populations.
