Professor Bernie Carter
Bernie absolutely believes that research is good for the soul. Her research focuses on children and young people whose lives are disrupted by pain, illness, disability, complex health care needs and disadvantage, and the ways in which this affects their parents, brothers and sisters and family life.
Her work aims to explore issues of importance to children, young people and their families to improve their everyday lives and the treatment provided and services they receive.
Much of Bernie’s research is qualitative; in particular her work is narrative, appreciative, participatory and arts and activities-based.
In the last couple of years, Bernie has been working with performers and writers as a means of disseminating research findings to the wider public.
Dr Andrew Balmer
Andy is Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Manchester and a member of the Morgan Centre for Research into Everyday Lives. His research is focused on everyday life, science and technology and has explored such topics as lying and deception, dementia and care.
He has taught at three Russell Group universities, on a diverse range of subjects, including research methods, personal life, social movements, media studies and sociology of science.
He is currently conducting research into the experience of changes in the relationships of people living with dementia and their carers, alongside an ongoing project on the sociology of lying, as well as a further study of the potential for collaboration between natural and social scientists.
