If the Shoe Fits: Footwear, Identity and Transition
Welcome to the ‘If the Shoe Fits’ blog.
This blog was set up in 2010 to complement the ‘If the Shoe Fits: Footwear, Identity and Transition’ research project, conducted in the department of Sociological Studies at the University of Sheffield between 2010 and 2013. Funded by the Economic Social Research Council, the project comprised a team of researchers and associates (other academics and professionals) whose aim it was to study the significance of footwear to identity and transition. This blog enabled us to share our ideas and some of our research with the aim of provoking wider discussions about the significance of footwear to everyday life. Since the completion of the project, the blog has continued to offer a platform through which to extend these conversations.
