Karen Morgan is a member of Gender Violence Research Centre in the School for Policy Studies. Her PhD research was completed in 2005 in the Department of Sociology (now SPAIS) at the University of Bristol. This examined discourses relating to women who have experienced domestic and/or sexual violence and the positioning of some women as to blame for their own victimization. Since completing her PHD, Karen has worked with research teams on various projects. These include looking at the relationship between local authorities and housing providers throughout the nominations process for social housing (in the School of Law at Bristol), and examining the ethical framework governing local councillors (in the School of City and Regional Planning at Cardiff University). She has also conducted independent research with a colleague on ethical food choices, Most recently, Karen has worked with other members of the School for Policy Studies, conducting interviews for the PROVIDE project, (Programme of Research On Violence in Diverse domestic Environments) and also working on the TARA project which is set up to examine the service use and needs of homeless women and to consider how these can best be met in both the short and long term.
Karen is also an Associate Lecturer with the Open University and is the vice-chair of an educational charity, The Vegan Society
