HART research informs golf report

Stacey 1Stacey Mitchell, a former research student in HART, supervised by Prof Jacquelyn Allen-Collinson & Dr Adam Evans (now at the University of Copenhagen), undertook her MSc by Research study on gender inequalities, practices and traditions within English golf. She now works as a Regional Development Officer for the Golf Foundation.

Stacey’s ground-breaking, ethnographic study of women’s and girls’ participation in amateur golf has now been utilised in a report produced for the R&A by Dr John Fry and Philip Hall of the International Institute for Golf Education. Her findings highlight the need to challenge negative and sexist stereotypes in golf. Stacey also recently appeared in national magazines, Women and Golf and Junior Golf Matters, Golfto share insights gained during her research degree at Lincoln.

Stacey continues to collaborate with us, and says: ‘HART has supported me throughout completing my MSc, and the help and guidance of my supervisors have been fantastic, even post-completion of my studies.’
