CRFR are pleased to publish Briefing No 94, which explores mothers’ experiences of domestic abuse and its relationship to poverty and social inequality. Using data from the Growing Up in Scotland study, this project examines age, socio-economic status and level of education to illustrate how multiple dimensions of poverty overlap and interlock with experiences of domestic abuse.
CRFR will host an informal seminar on Wednesday 21 April 2021, at 1pm to 2pm. In this seminar, Professor Janet Carsten will discuss findings from an ongoing collaborative project funded by the European Research Council, ‘A Global Anthropology of Transforming Marriage’.
