Personal profile

Research interests

Abby Barras is a doctoral researcher based in the School of Applied Social Science at the University of Brighton. Her research explores what the participatory experiences of transgender (including non-binary) people are in everyday sport and physical exercise in the UK. Her research draws on trans feminism and queer theory, sociological discussions about the body and embodiment and sports sociology. Her research, which engages directly with transgender (including non binary) people, asks what barriers people may (or may not) be facing when accessing sport, and looks to place these stories centrally and make recommendations for greater inclusivity.
