Description

Psychology Athena SWAN Lecture with Prof Abigail Locke, Psychology Research Lead and Professor of Psychology at the University of Bradford

Abigail Locke has a BSc and PhD from Loughborough University, as well as a PGCE from the University of Leicester. She has lectured at Coventry University, the University of Derby, Loughborough University and University of Huddersfield. Abigail is currently Visiting Professor in Social & Health Psychology at the University of Derby.

Abigail is a critical social/health psychologist and has research interests around gender, identity, parenting and qualitative methodologies. Her current research work focuses on societal constructions of ‘good’ motherhood’ and ‘good fatherhood’, and she has applied this lens to issues around stay-at-home-dads, infant feeding and the timing of motherhood. Abigail is committed to a vision of psychology as a broad and diverse discipline. Abigail has strong links with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is currently Deputy-Chair of the BPS Research Board and a Trustee.
