    Location:

    Tina Miller is a Professor of Sociology. Her research and teaching interests include motherhood and fatherhood transitions, constructions of gender and identities, masculinities, reproductive health, narratives, qualitative research methods and ethics and she regularly publishes in these areas. Tina has lived and worked in the Solomon Islands and Bangladesh as well as Oxford and has a particular interest in cultural dimensions and the situated nature of everyday experiences. Tina has been engaged as an expert advisor by the World Health Organisation (Geneva), think tanks and political parties in the UK, most recently giving evidence to the Parliamentary Women and Equalities Committee hearing on Fathers in the Workplace (March, 2018). She has presented her work in many countries, including Chile, Australia, India and Argentina. She regularly participates in TV and radio programmes in relation to her research and publications on motherhood, fatherhood and managing paid work and care in contemporary family lives. 

    Tina was awarded a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship in 2015, which focused on the topic of 'Managing modern family lives: public understandings and everyday practises of caring and paid work'. Her CUP monongraph based on the findings from this project was published in August 2017 (Making Sense of Parenthood:Caring, Gender and Family Lives). Tina is currently undertaking a new research project on 'Transition to First Time Motherhood: A New Generation', which uses the qualitative longitudinal research design from her original study undertaken on this topic a generation ago.
