Oxford Brookes lecturer acts as guest editor for sociology journal

Oxford Brookes sociology lecturer Professor Tina Miller has guest edited a special issue of the journal 'Families, Relationships and Societies' alongside Professor Esther Dermott (Bristol University), which is now available online.

This special issue focuses on contemporary fatherhood in Europe, with contributions from Denmark, Italy, Sweden, France and the UK.

Tina Miller set up the Oxford Network of European Fatherhood Researchers (ONEFaR)  following a British Academy Grant award in 2011. Since its inception the Network has organised research events in the UK, Italy and Sweden and presented in panel discussions at several European conferences. The Network is currently working on a book proposal with Policy Press on researching fatherhood and family lives, and will next present their work at the University of Roskilde, Denmark in November 2015.
