Anna Tarrant, from University of Lincoln

Anna Tarrant is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Lincoln.  Her current Leverhulme Trust funded study is a qualitative longitudinal study that examines change and continuity in men’s care responsibilities when living on a low income. This study builds on research interests in men and masculinities; family life and care; poverty and qualitative longitudinal methods.

She has recently completed an impact initiative called ‘Responding to Fathers in a Different Way’. This was a collaborative one-year project with partners from the third and voluntary sector aiming to develop policy and practice around fatherhood.  Her PhD at Lancaster University explored the influence of intergenerational relations on the construction and performance of contemporary grandfathering identities.
