Institution: Bangor University

Telephone: 01248 382232


Prior to joining WISERD in 2009 Robin has previously held positions at the Oxford Institute of Ageing, University of Oxford, where he is now an associate fellow, and before that at the Department of Sociology, University of Bristol.

Research Interests

His research interests are in three main fields:

1) Nationalism, ethnicity and identities; 2) Locality community and civil society; and 3) Grandparenthood and Intergenerational relationships . He would be interested in supervising PhD students in any of these areas.

Current Research

His current research focuses on two projects:

1. A book project on English national sentiments to be published with Palgrave (submission date 2015). This project advances his previously published work on English national identity through the adoption of a comparative approach taking account of the allied cases of Wales and Scotland, as well as international examples.

2. As co-investigator with the recently awarded ESRC large grant WISERDCivilSociety (2014-19). As part of this funding, Robin is lead investigator on a project examining narratives of continuity and change in local civil society (2014-17).

Previously completed projects include nation, class, resentment and the ethnic majority in England; public sentiments towards immigration in Wales; localities and local civil society in Wales; the use of Welsh in the third sector; grandfathers in contemporary families; and intergenerational transmissions of culture within the family.
