Welcome to the relocated project blog for the ‘If the Shoe Fits’ research project.
As you may be aware, this blog was originally attached to a large ESRC-funded project entitled ‘If the Shoe Fits: Footwear, Identity and Transition’ in the Department of Sociological Studies at The University of Sheffield (2010-2013). The project was led by professors Jenny Hockey and Victoria Robinson, with Dr. Rachel Dilley as research associate and myself as the postgraduate researcher.
The project has now finished, and, as so often happens with initiatives of this sort, the digital outputs hosted by the University are now under threat of deletion. To continue the legacy of the project the blog has therefore migrated to this new WordPress site.
We look forward to continuing the conversations provoked by the original ‘If the Shoe Fits’ research and providing a host of new academic insights to the social and cultural significance of shoes.
