Dr. Victoria Mountford is an Early Career Researcher having graduated from Newcastle University with ESRC-funded PhD in Sociology in 2012 and since been involved in a variety of academic and public/third sector research contracts. Victoria is also a Visiting Scholar at the Weeks Centre for Social and Policy Research, London South Bank University and is currently employed as an Academic Development Officer at the Higher Education Academy. Victoria’s research interests span from sociology of education and social inequalities through to cultural studies, popular culture, pedagogy, recovery and (social) entrepreneurship. In her doctoral thesis entitled Everyday Class Distinctions in Higher Education, Victoria attends to (undergraduate) student experiences beyond learning and the ways in which identities are negotiated and (re)constructed in and through the ‘everyday’ and the spaces and places of higher education and university life. Victoria considers her PhD research findings and implications further down the intellectual/career trajectory in times of austerity in a chapter entitled ‘Rules of Engagement: Negotiating and Capitalising on Student Experience Beyond the Gates’ in The Entrepreneurial University: Engaging Publics, Intersecting Impacts (2014, Palgrave MacMillan).
