Mrs Lorette Green

I have a background in teaching, having undertaken a BA in Primary Education in my late twenties at Leeds Trinity University, following a decade spent in secretarial work. In 2018 I completed a Masters in Early Childhood Education at Canterbury Christchurch University, writing a dissertation on parental decisions around preschool use which in turn led to my interest in family research and an introduction to sociology as a discipline. In 2022 I achieved fellowship status (FHEA) from Advance HE.Teaching.

My current research explores the extent to which normative values and discourses of ‘good’ mothering impact upon and shape working-class mothering practices.
