About Nel Manton
Nel is currently fulfilling her MSc Social Research Methods at University of Brighton (UK), as part of a 1+3 Ph.D. grant funded by South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership. Building onto “Duty of Care”, her BA (Hons) dissertation project, and inspired by her own employment as a care-worker, Nel's doctoral project examines visual discourses in commercial representations of care work, and the disparities between these expectations and realities of care (labour). Her work is finding resonance in academic events such as Women, Ageing and Media (WAM), CIRCLE’s Sustainable Care, International Visual Sociology Association Conference 2021, and engAGE’s Summer School at Concordia University, Montreal.
