Dr Katherine Hubbard
I am a Lecturer in the Sociology Department having previously worked in the School of Psychology. My research and teaching is inter-disciplinary, including sociological, psychological and historical components. I completed my PhD titled: 'A history of the Rorschach ink blot test: An interdisciplinary queer feminist approach to one bleeding test' at the University of Surrey. Prior to that I did a Masters at the University of Sussex in Applied and Social Psychology and a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Surrey.
My research is interdisciplinary and I work within and around Sociology, Psychology and History with particular interests in the histories of social sciences with queer feminist approaches. Trained as a social psychologist, I adopt a particular critical, perspective in analysis of objects of psychological and sociological interest. I am engaged with questions surrounding the influences and loops on and from the social sciences, as well as those surrounding 'truth' within the philosophy of science. Generally speaking, I have research interests in sexuality, gender, LGBT studies and queer history and adopt quantitative, qualitative and historical methods. I am involved in the University of Surrey's Sex, Gender and Sexuality (SGS) Research Group.
