Jessica Wild

Jessica Wild is a third year ESRC funded PhD candidate in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. She has a BA in English literature and Philosophy from the University of Sheffield, and a Masters in Gender studies with Research Methods from the University of Leeds. Her doctoral research explores how domestic abuse prevention and early intervention might be improved and diversified to reduce prevalence rates, particularly considering the current climate of austerity and UK government welfare reform. This includes interrogating men’s participation in men’s anti-violence against women work. Jessica’s work engages with feminist and participatory epistemological and methodological frameworks and foregrounds the perspectives and voices of women victim-survivors of domestic abuse.
