Profile Summary

Victoria Gosling's main research interests focus around the key areas of gender and social inclusion and exclusion. These interests stem from research carried out for her doctoral thesis that investigated 'Women's Experiences of Social Exclusion and Regeneration'. In particular she is interested in the impact that government policies such as urban regeneration schemes have on the lives of people living in area undergoing renewal, the gendered nature of these policies and the ways in which women understand and experience poverty. In addition Victoria has researched and published in the area of women's exclusion and marginalisation from different aspects of popular culture including women's marginalisation within digital gaming and sport fan culture. Victoria has been involved in two research projects funded by the AHRC, NESTA and the Arts Council working with the London Symphony Orchestras and International War Museums in evaluating these cultural organisations' use of new technologies in engaging their audiences.  Victoria completed her undergraduate degree in Sociology at the University of Teesside before moving to the University of Sheffield to carry out her doctoral studies. After completing the PhD in 2004 she began employment at Nottingham Trent University where she lectured in Sociology for 3 years before coming to Salford in September 2007. Victoria has been involved in working with the British Sociological Association (BSA) since her postgraduate days when she was BSA postgraduate forum convenor. She was also the Editor of the BSA Newsletter, Network and  a member of the editorial board of the BSA Journal Sociology as well as a reviewer for various journals including Urban Studies and Sociology.
