Postgraduate Research Candidates
There are a number of postgraduate research candidates who are currently being supervised by SaGR members, including but not limited to:
Constructions, Experiences, and Negotiations of Workplace Flexibility: A Qualitative Examination of the Disconnect Between the Workplace and Contemporary Fatherhood.
This research explores the way fathers of children 0-12 years, who work in the Australian Finance industry, construct, experience and negotiate flexible working arrangements (FWAs) (including parental leave). The aims of this research are threefold: 1) to explore the subjective experiences of workplace policies and practices surrounding FWAs from the perspective of men who are fathers; 2) to explore and provide insights into the way in which discourses of fatherhood, class, and masculinity shape fathers’ subjective experiences of FWAs; and 3) to examine how working fathers from different occupational status levels negotiate these discourses in the context of fathering and paid work.
