Independent Scholar/Emma Goldman Fellow (Flax Foundation) University of Edinburgh 2022-2024
Dr Rosalind Cavaghan’s research examines the gendering effects of macro-economic policies including climate transition policy, trade and science and technology policy. She focuses on both on policy and bureaucratic and civil society knowledge production processes, that promote competing solutions. Here, she applies insights from the sociology of knowledge and science and technology studies. These approaches sit adjacent to and in some instances challenge ontological premises of new institutionalism. Recent publications include her co-authored article forthcoming in winter 2021 in Journal of Common Market Studies ‘Dead Ends and Blind Spots: The Epistemological Foundations of the Crisis in Social Reproduction’; and her 2020 article ‘The Possibilities and Constraints for Intersectional Practice in Gender Budgeting Activism’, which formed part of a co-edited Special Issue of Social Politics ‘Experts, Idiots, and Liars: The Gender Politics of Knowledge and Expertise in Turbulent Times’. She is an independent scholar and consultant based in Scotland and will be an Emma Goldman Fellow at the University of Edinburgh 2022-2024.
