Emma Renold is Professor in Childhood Studies at the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University. She is the author of ‘Girls, Boys and Junior Sexualities’ (2005), Children, Sexuality and Sexualisation’ (with Ringrose and Egan, 2015) and ‘Agenda: A Young People’s Guide to Making Positive Relationships Matter’ (2016). She is currently working on a book project, ‘Gender Activisms and #FeministGirl’ with Professor Jessica Ringrose (Routledge forthcoming 2018).

Inspired by new feminist materialist and queer posthumanist theory, her research investigates how gender and sexuality intra-act and come to matter in children and young people’s everyday lives across diverse sites, spaces and locales. Recent projects (see www.productivemargins.ac.uk) explore the affordances of co-productive, creative and affective methodologies to engage social and political change on young people’s experiences of gendered and sexual violence.
