Dr Victoria Clarke
Associate Professor in Qualitative & Critical Psychology


One place

I’m lucky to live somewhere very beautiful – a small town on the southern edge of the Cotswolds. Going for an evening walk, hearing cows mooing… On my first family holiday in the Cotswolds as a teenager I fell in love with the landscape, and remember thinking ‘I want to live here’.

One book

Changing the Subject by Julian Henriques and colleagues. Read over and over, and highlighted in all the colours of the rainbow, as a student. It fundamentally changed my view of what psychology could and should be.

One documentary

I use Jennie Livingston’s fabulous documentary Paris is Burning (1990) about the drag ball culture of the black and Latino gay and trans community in New York in the 1980s to teach students about the social construction of gender and sexuality, and gender performativity, and the importance of thinking intersectionally.

One tool

Mindfulness. More often an aspiration than an achievement. But an amazing tool for managing stress, focusing on what’s important, and skilful living.

One challenge for qualitative psychology

Demand among students for qualitative research supervision far outstrips the number of supervisors with qualitative expertise.
