‘Now you see me, now you don’t’: the experiences of academics and students with caring responsibilities

Marie-Pierre Moreau is Professor in Education and Education Research Lead in the School of Education and Social Care, Anglia Ruskin University, UK. A sociologist by training, her research is located at the nexus of education, work and inequalities. Her current research concentrates in two key areas: teachers' identities and careers, with specific reference to gender and the 'feminisation thesis’, and the relationship between care and academic work, with specific reference to the way students and academic staff with caring responsibilities are positioned in academic discourses. She is the author or co-author of over 100 publications, including two monographs and an edited volume. She is the editor of the peer-reviewed journal International Studies in Widening Participation (with Dr Anna Bennett, Newcastle, Australia and Dr Nadine Zacharias, Deakin, Australia) and the editor of the Bloomsbury Gender and Education book series (with Prof. Penny Jane Burke, Newcastle, Australia and Prof. Nancy Niemi, Yale, USA).
