Professor Heather Walton

Research Interests:

My current research focuses on the ways in which the performance of narrative practices by anti-poverty organisations contributes to both socio-political change, & to renewed theologies of suffering & transformation. Through qualitative research with anti-poverty organisations, I am exploring how they listen to & share the experiences of marginalized groups, the ethical & practical tensions in this work, & how these practices inform theological praxis.

Previous Research Projects:

My previous research focused on contemporary Christian anti-poverty practices, which then provided the opportunity to work with third section organisations supporting their research & reflective practice.
