Professor Heath joined the University of Manchester in September 2010, having previously worked at the University of Southampton, where she was co-director of two ESRC Research Centres: the National Centre for Research Methods and the Centre for Population Change. Since its launch in 2005, the Morgan Centre has established itself as a centre of excellence, committed to breaking new empirical and theoretical ground in the fields of personal life, relationships, and everyday life. Professor Heath will talk about some of the innovative methods being used by members of the Morgan Centre to explore different facets of everyday life, including examples linked to a recent artist-in-residence project which explored the potential of observational sketching as a research tool.
