Research / Scholarly interests

Rosemary’s research to date has mainly concerned prejudice and discrimination, particularly regarding gender, sexualities, and their interrelation - as well as the intersection of other social categories – from a critical social psychological perspective. Her most recent work has focussed on what ‘everyday’ (hetero)sexism looks like in practice; how it becomes relevant and is managed in interactions; and to what effects, for instance in terms of identity, conflict/resolution and the (re)production of inequalities. She has also recently published work on the support of seemingly non-egalitarian political ideologies amongst women and sexual minorities, drawing upon various social psychological perspectives.
