I am in the Second Year of my PhD in Sociology. My research looks atstudying the ways in which young women perform appropriate and inappropriate feminine identities through their embodied practices on nights out in Newcastle. Through interviews and focus groups, I explore the ways in which women talk about dress and appearance, drinking practices and risk management, and the classed and sexualised feminine identities arising from these practices.
