PhD: Knowledge, Care and Emotions in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Work in British Higher Education
UNIVERSITY OVERVIEW Loughborough University is a research intensive university. In REF 2021 an outstanding 91% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career. PROJECT DETAILS A range of professional and academic staff are engaged in work to promote, support and embed EDI in British universities. This work is directed towards processes, regulations and practices involved in everyday institutional life and external charters such as Advance HE’s Athena SWAN and Race Equality Charters. This PhD project proposes a sociological approach to explore EDI as everyday work activities embedded in university plans and strategies to achieve equity and justice. The project will investigate the production of what constitutes ‘EDI knowledge’ and which activities and types of knowledge achieve recognition and status in HEI. It will also examine whether and how EDI work represents an ethics of care (Tronto, 2013) and the extent to which it involves emotional labour (Hochschild, 1983). The project aims to study these issues within the context of one or two British universities, using mainly qualitative research methods (e.g., ethnography; interviews; focus groups). It will contribute to current debates about EDI in higher education and provide research-informed proposals on how to best support university staff who engage in EDI work. The successful candidate will become part of an interdisciplinary mini doctoral training centre at Loughborough University entitled CITHEI - Unequal Academic Citizenship: Opportunities and Barriers to Participation and Inclusion of Cultural Diversity and Intersecting Identities in Higher Education. The project is principally located within the School of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), where social inequalities is a major research theme, and secondarily within the School of Business and Economics (SBE), where work and organisations are key research themes. SUPERVISORS Primary supervisor: Professor Line NyhagenSecondary supervisor: Dr Daniel Sage and Dr Sarah Barnard ENTRY REQUIREMENTS The successful applicant will have a Masters’ degree with merit (2.1) or above in sociology or any relevant discipline in the social sciences. Experience from EDI work in higher education is desirable but not necessary. Applicants must meet the minimum English language requirements. Further details are available on our International website. FUNDING Due to funding restrictions, the funding is only open to UK students. The studentship is for 3 years (full-time) or 6 years (part-time) and provides a tax-free stipend of £16062 per annum for the duration of the studentship plus tuition fees at the UK rate. Please note that studentships will be awarded on a competitive basis to applicants who have applied to this project using the advert reference. HOW TO APPLY All applications should be made online at http://www.lboro.ac.uk/study/apply/research/. Under programme name, select Criminology, Sociology and Social Policy.
