Funding has ended

As of today, the funding for this study has come to an end. This doesn’t mean that the project is over, there is so much writing to be done, but it does mean that the findings have been generated and analysis of data is well underway.

On Thursday 14th June 2018 I held an end of research seminar at the University of Lincoln which included keynote presentations from Prof. Bren Neale, Director of Following Young Fathers and Dr Kahryn Hughes, Director of the Timescapes Archive and Intergenerational Exchange. Both have been incredibly generous with their time and support. Copies of their presentations are available to view below.


Following Young Fathers, Prof. Bren Neale

Intergenerational Exchange, Dr Kahryn Hughes and Dr Nick Emmel

Dr Anna Tarrant: Men, Poverty and Lifetimes of Care

Evidence exhibition

I also presented an exhibition of some of the key findings from the study. These are described in more detail on the project website here. It is hoped that the prints can be presented at other exhibitions and events in order to challenge prevailing narratives about men in low income families and given them more of a voice about their participation in family life.

Poster Presentations

Three poster presentations were also presented on the day by postgraduate students at the University of Lincoln. With thanks to Se Bond-Taylor, Mary Brown and Nicola Shore for sharing your work.
