Dr Rachael EasthamResearch Associate
I am currently working on a project led by Dr Elizabeth McDermott, regarding LGBTQ+ young people and the impact of their family relationships on mental health and wellbeing. This is an exploratory project funded by the Wellcome Trust that will pilot qualitative and creative methods in order to best understand how to research these experiences.
I am primarily a qualitative researcher interested in sexualities, gender and sexual health including sexual pleasure. I value the use of creative methods in research, particularly visual methods and historical approaches including the use of life histories and archival research.
