Research overview

Shiona's research field is the sociology of work and employment, concerning the social relations, codes and practices that inform people's working lives and the organisations within which these unfold. Earlier in her career, her research employed the sociology of professions in various contexts including the changing nature of graduate employment, and the working lives of Information and Communications Technology professionals. Current research interests are located in the Institute for Capitalising on Creativity, focusing on the creative industries. Recent projects have used Bourdieu's sociology, and the sensitising concepts of field, capitals and habitus. HERA and AHRC funded projects have examined the Scottish indigenous textiles industry (Enterprise of Culture), and the role of design in entrepreneurship (Design in Action).
