Biography

Carly's teaching and research interests are primarily focused around narrative identity, the sociology of storytelling and body-self disruptions in a variety of contexts. Recent research includes advocating for sport autobiographies as an analytical resource in sport, exercise and health, and exploring the trouble that Lance Armstrong's public story has caused in the lives of individuals heavily invested in him. Research underway includes gender-based violence in gymnasts as part of an international research group and a British Academy funded project to explore a local transgender community group's experiences of swimming. Carly joined Bournemouth University in 2016 and is the Head of Education in the Department of Sport and Physical Activity. She worked at Cardiff Metropolitan University 2006-2016, having gained her PhD from the University of Exeter.
