Research overview

I am an ESRC-funded doctoral candidate interested in conceptualisations of ‘the wild’ and the co-constitution of bodies and environments, in the practice of wild swimming, in a time of climate crisis. I am interested in what the wild means to wild swimmers, how swimmers experience a sense of wildness and the context of outdoor swimming in the emergent industry of the wild.

Supervised By

I am under the supervision of Drs. Claire Waterton and Nicola Spurling.
