Ellen Harries (Former Intern)Interns
Ellen has a first class honours degree in History and Sociology from the University of Manchester (2009) and gained a distinction for her MSc in Sociological Research (2010). Her Masters thesis, supervised by Prof. Nick Crossley, was titled Social Networks and Social Movements: Differential Participation in Climate Change Activism. She used social network analysis to investigate how green activists differentially participate in anti-government protest and how they operate under conditions of repression. Alongside her studies, Ellie worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Manchester on Prof. Crossleys Social Networks and Covert Social Movements project. She collected historical network data on the Suffragettes and investigated how the protest movement developed once it was forced to go underground.
