Dr Russell Delderfield

Senior Skills Advisor, University of Bradford


(text – University of Bradfield) Dr Delderfield’s doctoral study was entitled Exploring male disordered eating: a hermeneutic study of men’s relationships with food, body and self. Russell’s work applies social psychology in a field dominated by medical discourses. His research uses stories to explore issues of identity, selfhood, gender, masculinities and eating disorder. He is also working on understandings of misandry within society, the philosophical underpinnings of masculism as a counterpart to feminism, and the nature of qualitative inquiry when using interpretive approaches such as hermeneutics, phenomenology, IPA, discourse analysis, narrative analysis, memory work, biographical work and dialogical analysis.

This training session will be delivered via Zoom
