Sarah Milton's Affiliation

Sarah Milton's Teaching

I am a seminar leader on Principles of Social Research (PSR), and am part of the Medical Anthropology and PSR distance learning team. 

I am particularly interested in the intersections between age, gender and class and would be interested in advising qualitative projects in these areas. 

Sarah Milton's Research

I am currently working on a in depth, qualitative project about welfare benefits and ageing in the UK, as part of the NIHR-funded School for Public Health Research programme in PHP. As part of this team I also contribute to the research surrounding the meaning and use of 'evidence' outside of academia and the health sector.

My PhD is an ethnographic account of ageing, femininity and sexuality amongst women in the UK that start dating again later in life.
