Jackie is Senior Lecturer in French and Co-Director of the Centre for Gender History at the University of Glasgow. She has published on a range of themes related to work, consumption and deindustrialisation in twentieth and twenty-first century France. She is particularly interested in working-class subjectivities, gender and cultural dimensions of deindustrialisation. Within the DePOT project, she is Co-Lead of the initiatives on Gender, Family and Deindustrialization (with Arthur McIvor) and Working-Class Expression (with Tim Strangleman).
Jackie’s current project, ‘Generation Moulinex’ uses the case of domestic appliance company Moulinex to chart the transformation of cultures of work and consumption in France from the industrialism of the 1960s to the aftermath of a wave of factory closures at the turn of the twenty-first century. Recently she has begun to explore how approaches from the history of emotions and material culture studies can illuminate this history.
