Dr Maddie Breeze

Strathclyde Chancellor'S Fellow

Education

Personal statement

I joined the School of Education at Strathclyde as Lecturer and Chancellor's Fellow in September 2017. I have previously worked as a Lecturer in Public Sociology at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, and as a researcher in Sociology at the University of Edinburgh investigating young people's participation in Scottish independence politics. My PhD (Sociology, University of Edinburgh, 2014) explored the gender and organizational dynamics of roller derby as a unique women's sports practice and developed a sociological analysis of seriousness as a way to further understanding the mid-ranges of agency and social change in institutions. I published this research in a 2015 monograph with Palgrave Macmillan, which was awarded the 2016 British Sociological Association Phillip Abrams Memorial Prize for the best first sole-authored book in sociology.

Currently I am interested in the emotional and affective dimensions of intersectional inequalities in higher education, among both students and academic workers, and particularly in how stratification and exclusion in educational contexts is reproduced and can be challenged. I am approaching this problem in investigations of, for instance, 'imposter syndrome' as a public feeling in higher education.
