Line Nyhagen

Line is Reader in Sociology at the Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University, United Kingdom. Her research is interdisciplinary and crosses subject areas within sociology and political science. She gained her PhD in Sociology from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA, in 1998.

Line’s main research interests are in the areas of religion, gender, feminism and women’s movements, migration and ethnic relations, citizenship and identities, and public policy. She is an expert in the sociology of gender and in the sociology of religion.

Line's latest book, 'Religion, Gender and Citizenship: Women of Faith, Gender Equality and Feminism' (with Beatrice Halsaa, published April 2016), has already been called a 'landmark contribution to scholarship'. The book explores views and experiences of Christian and Muslim women living in Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom related to their faith, identities and citizenship. It also examines their views on gender equality, women's movements and feminism.

Line’s previous book, Majority-Minority Relations in Contemporary Women’s Movements: Strategic Sisterhood (with Beatrice Halsaa; Palgrave Macmillan 2012), has been reviewed in numerous journals, including The Sociological Review, NORA - Nordic Journal of Women’s Studies, the International Journal of Iberian Studies and more (for links to and excerpts from reviews, click here. The book compares and contrasts contemporary women’s movements in Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom, with particular attention to relations between ethnic majority and ethnic minority women and politics.

Both of Line’s most recent books have emerged from the research project Gendered citizenship in multicultural Europe: The impact of contemporary women’s movements (see www.femcit.org), funded by the European Commission. Line was Work Package Leader for the theme “Multicultural citizenship: Intersections between feminism, ethnic identity and religion”, and led an international, collaborative team of researchers. Her work within FEMCIT also included a study of how women’s movement activists understand citizenship (see Nyhagen Predelli, Halsaa and Thun 2012).

Line has initiated, worked on and led several research projects that have investigated the experiences of ethnic minorities, including Muslim women and men, ethnic minority women’s organizations, and immigrant organizations. In a project sponsored by the Research Council of Norway, she studied immigrant organizations in Norway with a view to their involvement in political decision-making processes. The project followed on from her previous research on the national political influence of ethnic minority women’s organizations, which was commissioned jointly by the Norwegian Research Programme on Power and Democracy and the Norwegian Ministry of Children and Family Affairs. In the field of migration and ethnic relations, she has also studied the views and practices of Muslim women and men in relation to gender, which involved in-depth interviews with Muslims in Norway of Pakistani and Moroccan backgrounds. She led the evaluation of the Contact Committee for Immigrants and the Authorities in Norway, commissioned by the Norwegian Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development. Line has also engaged in historical-sociological research on gender and religion, published in her book Issues of Gender, Race, and Class in the Norwegian Missionary Society in Nineteenth Century Norway and Madagascar (The Edwin Mellen Press, 2003) and in journal articles.

Lisa Goff

Lecturer of English, University of Virginia

Lisa Goff joined the University of Virginia's American Studies faculty in the fall of 2012 and has a joint appointment with the Department of English. A cultural historian who studies the American landscape, she teaches classes in cultural landscapes, public history, theories and methods of American Studies, the history of journalism, and gender and social media. She recently launched a new digital history project, Take Back the Archive, dedicated to the history of sexual violence at the university. She is also director of the Institute for Public History, which places students in paid internships at museums, archives, and historic sites in central Virginia.

Her first book, Shantytown, USA: Forgotten Landscapes of the Working Poor, will be published in April 2016 by Harvard University Press. The book argues that shantytowns constitute an alternative vision of American urban space between 1820 and 1940, and that conflicts over shantytowns as places and symbols of working-poor culture were an essential element in the formation of twentieth-century class difference in the United States. She is currently working on a second book project, which examines restoration as a theoretical concept and a practical application that spans disciplines, geographies, and centuries.

Lucy Blake

Research Associate at the Centre for Family Research, University of Cambridge

As a Research Associate at the Centre for Family Research at the University of Cambridge, I conduct and coordinate studies that focus on family relationships and psychological well-being.

My research has focused on families created through assisted reproductive technologies, such as sperm donation, egg donation, and surrogacy. I have explored how parents explain their use of donor eggs, sperm or surrogates, to their young children. I have also examined how children think and feel about their families.

More recently, my research has focused on the breakdown of family relationships, sometimes referred to as family estrangement. This relatively common phenomenon has received little research attention. The aim of my research is to expand upon what we know about the causes, processes and consequences of relationship breakdown between family members, and to explore how estrangement affects and influences psychological well-being.

I am committed to conducting high quality research on families that is of use to policy makers, practitioners, and families themselves. There is a lot to gain from moving beyond assumptions and studying families as they actually are.

Conserving resources and reducing pollution are among the most pressing challenges facing society.

I investigate these issues using large administrative datasets and experimental and quasi-experimental methods.

His PhD research (2007-11) focused on the empirical analysis of the relationship between Irish traditional music and copyright using interviews and survey data gathered from traditional musicians.

He recently completed an article - now published in The Modern Law Review - investigating copyright in the world of theatre, whereby I interviewed playwrights, directors and actors about the relationship between their theatrical practices and the norms of copyright. He also conducts quantitative and qualitative empirical research in the area of patent litigation.

His latest article - on trade marks, brands and anthropological marketing - will be published in the Journal of Law and Society in December 2015.

In the past he has written comment pieces for The Guardian and Dissent Magazine, as well as a number of law blogs.

His research into the issue of patent troll litigation in the UK was cited in a House of Commons debate in March 2014:
