Fellowship focus: Exploring the sociology of sleep, ageing, disease and caregiving, and how modern society commodifies and commercialises sleep.

Dr Gibson will bring her expertise in sleep, ageing, and health to collaborate with Surrey’s sociologists. This Fellowship will include the launch of a study which explores the representation of sleep and ageing in the British media, expanding on Dr Gibson’s research on the discourses and practices of sleep in bicultural New Zealand. A seminar and workshop on the sociocultural aspects of sleep are also planned, which will present her research alongside contributions from collaborators across the UK – serving to strengthen an international research network and agenda.
