Hannah completed her doctoral research under the supervision of Professor Ronnie Lippens, Dr. Evi Girling, and Dr. Samantha Weston at Keele University. The PhD thesis is entitled: ‘No Man’s Land? Veterans’ experiences of 21st century warfare and the return to post-conflict life’. Hannah uses in-depth qualitative and visual methodology, drawing theoretical inspiration from the works of Pierre Bourdieu on the (re)production of power and inequality within society, and from Zygmunt Bauman on the fluidity and precariousness of modern life.
She has worked with Staffordshire and Birmingham based charities to support criminalised veterans. This has involved sharing research findings and developing a training programme for practitioners. In addition, Hannah has worked as a Research Associate alongside Dr. Samantha Weston on projects with Re-Solv – around early intervention and prevention of volatile substance abuse, and with Staffordshire Police, evaluating the child sexual exploitation (CSE) prevention programme.
Hannah is a member of the European Society of Criminology, the British Society of Criminology, the Defence Research Network, and the European Group for the Study of Deviance and Social Control.
Her current work explores the embodied traces of the ‘war on terror’ and lived experience of austerity for former British military personnel. She is also working on an article that draws attention to the warning signs of fascism amid the UK government’s response to Covid-19.
