Having had my brain rearranged by three years of social anthropology, I decided that I needed to live the social for a while before researching it. After 16 years of doing just that -- of which three years were spent in a consensus-based workers' co-operative, and another seven in community development, youth work and informal education in the third sector -- I finally managed to make my way back to the academy. I have an ESRC CASE PhD studentship, the CASE partner being the Forestry Commission via the Scottish Government. My thesis title is: "Young men and their perceptions of and interactions with woods and forests" -- or, to put that colloquially, "Boys in the Woods".
