A launch of the Leverhulme Trust funded ‘Men, Poverty and Lifetimes of Care’ study

Supported by the Eleanor Glanville Centre, this afternoon seminar at the University of Lincoln celebrates the end of a three-and-a-half year study funded by the LeverhulmeTrust called ‘Men, Poverty and Lifetimes of Care’, undertaken by Dr Anna Tarrant, School of Social and Political Science, University of Lincoln. Two keynotes will be presented by Emeritus Professor Bren Neale and Dr Kahryn Hughes respectively, both from the University of Leeds, on qualitative longitudinal research studies they have directed looking at the dynamics of low income family life.


Researching low income family life using qualitative longitudinal methods

Delegates will hear substantive findings and outcomes from Following Young Fathers from Professor Neale, and Intergenerational Exchange from Dr Hughes. Both studies were conducted under the ESRC funded Timescapes Programme of research. These keynotes will be followed by the first national launch of the findings from ‘Men, Poverty and Lifetimes of Care’. The event will finish with a panel about methodological developments relating to the Timescapes Archive and the possibilities of qualitative secondary analysis for social research and knowledge production. A small exhibition of data from Dr Tarrant’s research has been developed into letterpress prints by socially engaged artist Katie Smith in collaboration with The Smallprint Company. These will also be launched at the event and available to view on the day.


This event will appeal to academics from a range of disciplines interested in or researching the lived experiences and support needs of low-income families, with particular emphasis on men and grandparents.
