Research

As an interdisciplinary researcher, Angela applies a sociological lens to explore multiple social science research areas, often with collaborators in natural sciences, mental health, communication and media studies, cultural studies and/or social work and has received several research grants. Broad areas of research interest are:

  • Social Change, Problems & Inequality - Class, Gender, Culture & Sexuality -- institutional (macro), individual (micro) and meso-level analyses
  • Communication & Media Studies
  • Environmental Sociology and Critical Animal Studies
  • Sociology of Science & Technology - History, Knowledge & Power
  • Political Sociology, Social Movements & Social Control

Recent research topics include:

  • Environmental & community change – water & air quality, demographic change (tree-change, suburbanisation, in/out migration), degradation, rurality
  • Organisational & individual health/well-being – life and workplace satisfaction, depression, violence, bullying
  • Educational technologies & communication – distance education, mediated social interactions
  • Media & cultural analysis – media representation of animals, environmentalism, sustainability, culture, sexuality and gender

As a qualitative and quantitative researcher, key methods utilised include discourse analysis, content analysis, focus groups, interviews, secondary data analysis and comparative social history.

Serving as primary supervisor of several PhD and honours students, Angela enjoys helping her research students get academically published. Recent exemplars of student research projects resulting in publications are:
